Acacpulco police disarmed and investigated over alleged drug links

Authorities in southern Mexico have disarmed and placed under investigation the entire police force in the resort of Acapulco, claiming the force has been infiltrated by drug gangs.

Officials in Guerrero state issued arrest warrants for two Acapulco police commanders, accusing them of homicide. It was the latest fall from grace for Acapulco, which was a favourite haunt of film stars in the 1960s but has since fallen victim to warring drug gangs.
