Warning by Mexican cartels.

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico has warned of cartel violence in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, after authorities confirmed the deaths of two of the four Americans kidnapped last week by an armed group in the town of Matamoros.

The ambassador, Ken Salazar, has indicated that. Tamaulipas “represents a risk because of high levels of criminality. and violence”: “We are particularly concerned about the control exercised by the Gulf cartel in the area known as the small border,” he said.

“These acts of violence are a tragic reminder that requires us to reaffirm our governments’ commitment to secure our shared border and strengthen the fight against transnational criminal organizations,” he said, according to a statement.

Salazar also assured that achieving border security “is possible.” and added that Washington has to achieve it because “the well-being of our citizens depends on it.”

“Our highest priority is the safety and security of American citizens.. We reaffirm our willingness to work closely with the Government of Mexico to ensure that those responsible in this case are punished and that we work to ensure that similar violent acts do not happen again,” the diplomat said.
