U.S. Denounces Military Abuses in Mexico

Diario La Estrella, Posted: Mar 12, 2010

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. government said Thursday that it has received multiple reports of human rights abuses by the Mexican military during its 2009 campaign against organized crime. In its annual global human rights report presented by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the U.S. State Department found that there were various allegations of murder, disappearances and torture in connection with the drug war. According to the report, security forces both within and outside of the military chain of command, killed several people, including children, throughout the year. Washington also detailed for the first time that cases of human rights abuses against civilians were tried in military courts.
