This is the second highest daily number of intentional homicides so far during the López Obrador’s administration.

Violence in Mexico experienced one of its chapters with the largest number of homicides last weekend, according to data from the Ministry of Public Security and Citizen Protection.

115 people were killed across the country on July 4, according to data released by the agency. Only 8 of the 32 states had no homicides.

Guanajuato, with 16 homicides, topped the list, followed by Michoacán (12), and Baja California, the State of Mexico, and Morelos (11).

The day with the most murders so far this administration was June 7, 2020, with a total of 117.
