"A fresh wave of violence is sweeping through Mexico as the country prepares to choose its new president on July 1.
Powerful drug cartels are battling for influence and have been targeting politicians they think might get in their way. According to an investigation by Reuters, at least 82 candidates and officeholders have already been killed since the electoral season began in September 2017."

"Tourists are being forced to drive their cars past the dismembered bodies of cartel victims as the drug violence escalates in Acapulco, Mexico.
In February, the US government told citizens not to go to the former party town as it was revealed that Mexico suffered nearly 30,000 murders last year alone."
