Mexico’s drug cartel shows its might during president’s visit

The Mexican government is analysing a video showing dozens of gunmen and armoured vehicles, apparently belonging to the powerful Jalisco drug cartel.
It seems to be a show of force before a visit by President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to three states where the group has a stronghold.

Al Jazeera’s John Holman reports from Mexico City.

In This Story: Mexico

Mexico is a country in the southern portion of North America. It is the most populous Spanish-speaking nation. Mexico City is its capital city and largest metropolis.

Mexico became an independent nation state after the successful Mexican War of Independence against Spain in 1821.

Mexico is a developing country, but has the world’s 15th-largest economy by nominal GDP and the 11th-largest by PPP, with the United States being its largest economic partner. Since 2006, a conflict between the government and drug trafficking syndicates has led to over 120,000 deaths.

Mexico receives a significant number of tourists every year; in 2018, it was the 6th most-visited country in the world, with 39 million international arrivals.
