Detienen a cuerpo de Policía de la ciudad de Linares

JUAREZ, MEXICO - MARCH 21:  Mexican police investigate a violent incident on March 21, 2010 in Juarez, Mexico. The border city of Juarez has been racked by violent drug related crime recently and has quickly become one of the most dangerous cities in the world. As drug cartels have been fighting over ever lucrative drug corridors along the United States border, the murder rate in Juarez has risen to 173 slayings for every 100,000 residents. President Felipe Calderon in 2009 disbanded the corrupt local police force and sent 10,000 soldiers to Juarez, but the violence has raged on. With a population of 1.3 million in Juarez, 2,600 died in drug-related violence last year and 500 so far this year, including two Americans who worked for the U.S. Consulate last weekend as they returned from a children's party.

El cuerpo de policía de la ciudad de linares fue detenido a consecuencia de sospechas de posible corrupción y lazos con el crimen organizado, según informaron las autoridades

Integrantes del ejército mexicano y la policía estatal de Nuevo León realizan las labores de vigilancia en su lugar.

La detención de más de 100 oficiales se dio después de un aumento en los casos de secuestro y extorsión en la región.

El presidente municipal de Linares, Francisco Medina Quintanilla, dijo al canal Milenio Televisión que los policías de su ciudad fueron llevados en autobús a otra ciudad, donde estarán detenidos mientras se les investiga.

Linares se ubica a unos 120 kilómetros (75 millas) al sureste de Monterrey, la capital del estado
