"The Mexican government is sending thousands of additional troops to the violence-stricken western state of Michoacan, a military official said Thursday. The official told The Associated Press that the first of some 4,000 soldiers had begun arriving in the state capital, Morelia, to prepare for an offensive in a mountainous western section of the state known as Tierra-Caliente. The area has been hit by a surge in violence in recent weeks." (02/02/12)
