Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

Heavily-armed Mexican police arrest suspects during a patrol through a neighbourhood of the border city known to be a stronghold of one of the country's most formidable drug cartels. In the midst of Mexico's escalating drug wars, Juarez City on is a battlefield, with 400 dead in the first two months of 2009. On this day, 21 February 2009, these police patrol just hours after the city's chief of police was forced to resign by a cartel campaign of killing police officers until he stood down. About twelve hours before this patrol, two more police officers were murdered, prompting the resignation, but these standing in the back of police pick-ups still took to the city's streets.
