The state with the highest murder rate is Guanajuato, where the Jalisco New Generation and Santa Rosa de Lima cartels are engaged in a power struggle, according to the BBC.
For years, Mexico relied on the military to confront organized crime, in some cases even disbanding local police forces because they had been infiltrated by cartels.
The rise in homicides stands in contrast to the vow made by Lopez Obrador’s campaign promise to reduce violence in the country.
In an interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Lopez Obrador argued that security was improving in Mexico.
“Our data shows that we’ve brought this situation under control,” he said to Ramos.
But Ramos countered: “The data I have shows something else, you’re not controlling, to the contrary, many Mexicans continue to die.”
Security experts say fueling the rising violence is the fact that many cartels have splintered into factions that have engaged in increasingly bloody battles over control.
