Salvatierra, Mexico

Salvatierra is located in the valley of Huatzindeo in Guanajuato. Tourist websites speak of beautiful locations. Salvatierra hit the news last week when Mexican authorities uncovered 59 bodies in a mass burial site. The victims are said to be teenagers. Salvatierra municipality is one of the most violent places in the world as drug cartels fight for control of trafficking routes.
In July gunmen stormed a drug rehabilitation centre in Irapuato, Guanajuato, killing 24 people. Killers jumped out of a truck and rushed into the building, where they forced those present to drop to the floor before shooting them.
