    This is a sampling of english transalations of stories from Mexican and Central American media.

    Juarez police quitting in droves

    According to official records released yesterday 91 Juarez policemen have quit voluntarily this year. Three others were let go “for loss of trustworthiness.” Just last weekend, at the funeral of one of their fellow workers, some members of the Juarez police expressed their desire to quit for fear of losing their lives in what they themselves called “a lost war” against organized crime.

But afterward, federal police agents threatened them with firearms and demanded that they retract the allegations in front of video cameras. Yesterday, a group of Salvadorans decided to leave Mexico voluntarily and return to their country. They were escorted to the border for their safety by Mexican naval personnel and agents from a Chiapas state agency.
