    Mexico Under Siege
    Business Heads Plead as Drug Gangs Terrorize Wealthy City

    By NICHOLAS CASEY

    MONTERREY, Mexico—A surge of drug violence in Mexico's business capital and richest city has prompted an outcry from business leaders who on Wednesday took out full-page ads asking President Felipe Calderón to send in more soldiers to stem the violence.

    'Es momento de hacer un alto y decidir sobre la mejor forma de responder a las bandas de criminales que ... buscan establecer un nuevo parámetro de terror.'

    'It's time to stop and decide the best way to respond to criminal bands ... looking to establish a new boundary of terror.'

    The growing violence in Monterrey, long one of Mexico's most modern and safe cities, is a sign that the country's war against drug gangs is spreading ever further from poorer battlegrounds along the border and into the country's wealthiest enclaves.

    Residents opened their newspapers Wednesday morning to find the ads taken out by Mexican business leaders, begging the government to send more military into the city. "Enough already," said the notice that ran in national and local papers, criticizing what it said was a slow response of police against "criminal bands that in every act look to establish a new boundary of terror."

    Later that day, the body of Edelmiro Cavazos, mayor of the Monterrey suburb of Santiago, was found beside a highway. Mr. Cavazos had been abducted Sunday night, the latest in a string of attacks against politicians in Mexico's north.
