Mexico’s Army sent 200 soldiers to the border city of Matamoros this week, an area with a history of being controlled by the Gulf Cartel.The arrival of troops comes soon after the criminal organization was able to bring all activity in that city to a halt last weekend by hijacking tractor-trailers and buses to block main avenues. Gunmen also torched vehicles to support their blockades. The efforts were carried out in response to a recent military raid targeting local Gulf Cartel operatives. . . .
