Intense security precedes Cancun drug summit

Published by at 8:17 am under Noted Briefly |

Major reinforcements have been added to the usual tight security that prevails in the Cancun Hotel Zone this weekend in anticipation of the 38th International Drug Control Conference.

Elements of the Presidential, Federal Preventive Police, and State and municipal police forces have taken up positions on Paseo Kukulcan, the palm-lined boulevard that stretches all along the narrow island. Mobile towers with cameras have been placed at strategic locations in addition to roadblocks and stepped up patrols.

The 120-nation conference will be held Feb. 5-7 at the JW Marriot Casa Magna.
