MEXICO - Where are the missing?

In Mexico, the National Commission on Human Rights (NCHR) recorded from December 2006 to March 2011, 5397 cases of people reported "missing or absent" rapporteEl Universal. This report was published days after the request for a UN mission for the withdrawal of the military security operations, as there are consistent reports of enforced disappearances perpetrated by the military.

Since the beginning of the war launched by the Calderón government against the drug cartels in December 2006, 34,600 people were murdered. The NHRC has identified 8,898 unidentified dead during the same period.
