Business travellers: Kidnappings on the rise in Mexico.

Kidnappings in Mexico have risen by more than 20 percent during the first months of PRI’ s President Enrique Peña Nieto’s administration.

According to Mexican government statistics, there were 517 kidnappings between January and April in 2013, up from 421 over the same period in 2012.

This is also happening in other latinamerican countries like Colombia, Venezuela and Peru.
