Crime Numbers

According to a classified document prepared by the federal government, 9,635 people died in Mexico due in killings linked to organized crime. That's significantly higher than the 7,000 and change that was being reported publicly toward the end of last year. The same document says that 3,365 people were killed in the first quarter of 2010, which of course represents a further acceleration of the violence.
