The headline reads, Mexican armed forces take over security in key Pacific port
Mexican armed forces have taken charge of security in the Pacific port of Lazaro Cardenas, a major cargo hub in a part of the country struggling to contain violent drug gangs.
The story-behind-the-story is that the port of Lázaro Cárdenas in the state of Michoacán is a veritable gold mine for the Caballeros Templarios (Knights Templar) drug gang, as they have merged legitimate businesses with their criminal activities.
Milenio.com has a report (in Spanish), explaining how.
Illegal businesses (drug trade, kidnappings, etc) and extortion to both businesses and municipalities combine with agricultural industry-related businesses for money-laundering to turn the city of Lázaro Cárdenas into the Templars’ financial center.
