Rising death toll in Ciudad Juarez

Look at these numbers for the death toll for Ciudad Juarez, the northern border city across from El Paso. It is a comparison of the first six months of this year with the past two years. The source is the Diario newspaper in Juarez.

2008--Jan-June: 520 homicides
2009--Jan-June: 871
2010--Jan-June 27: 1,363

Two Mexican-Americans were shot and killed in a bar in Juarez on Saturday. The trend is obvious.
