Mexico City: The smog gets worse
In the metropolis of the eternal traffic jam,
Mexico City Doubles Driving Ban as Pollution Persists. Authorities order two out of every five private vehicles off the road amid heavy smog
Officials had banned every car from hitting the road one weekday each week and one Saturday a month from April through June based on their license plate numbers and regardless of how new the vehicles are or how they fare on emissions tests.
But after an air-quality monitoring station in the city measured ozone at 160 micrograms per cubic meter on Tuesday—the WHO recommends 100 micrograms at most—the environmental commission issued an emergency order forcing twice as many cars to stay off the roads Wednesday.
It won’t take much ingenuity to find a way around that, either.

Islamist Militants Join Latin American Drug Lords in Explosive Duo. Hezbollah Seeks Closer Links with Drug Cartels Due to Iran’s Falling Oil Revenues
This week, the DEA announced the arrests of Hezbollah operatives with connections to ‘La Oficina de Envigado,’ a major Colombian Drug Trafficking organization responsible for a large share of the cocaine shipped to US and European markets. The presence in Latin America of Hezbollah, the Lebanese-based and Iran-backed Shi’a Islamic terror group is hardly news.
The group has been active in money laundering and other illicit activities in the region for decades, predominantly in the lawless tri-border region between Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. Most notably, Hezbollah bombed a Jewish center in Buenos Aires in 1994, killing 85 and wounding hundreds. However, the recent increase in cooperation with drug traffickers, as evidenced by these high-profile arrests, represents an alarming trend and a dangerous prospect for the future of hemispheric security.
Falling oil prices are affecting Iran’s economy, and Hezbollah must diversify and pursue other revenue streams. The lucrative Latin American drug trade is a natural choice.

Printing Error. Venezuela is now importing 100 bolivar bills by the planeload: more banknotes, actually, than the whole of the European Union needs.
