MORELIA, Mexico —Fierce fighting among appar-ent rival drug gangs in west-ern Mexico bloodied onehighway with 28 dead, whilein a nearby state more than700 people huddled in shel-ters after fleeing villages thathad become battlegrounds.The violence, whichappeared to be unrelated,escalated Wednesday in thewestern states of Nayarit andMichoacan, where drug car-tels have been warring forterritory.Police in Nayarit initiallyresponded to a citizen com-plaint of a kidnapping by agroup of armed men, who fledon a federal highway near thetown of Ruiz in the centralpart of the state, accordingthe state prosecutors office.As the officers headedtoward the scene, they hearda second report of a shoot-out involving the same men,according to the statement,which did not identify thegangs or the victims.Police found 28 men lyingdead and four others woundedon the road littered with bulletcasings from high-poweredweapons and 10 abandonedvehicles.The statement releasedlate Wednesday by the attor-ney general’s office gave nofurther details.Earlier in the day, an offi-cial in the nearby westernstate of Michoacan said drugcartel violence had promptedfrightened villagers there toflee hamlets and take refugeat five shelters set up at achurch, event hall, recreationcenter and schools.It is at least the secondtime a large number of ruralresidents have been displacedby drug violence in Mexico.In November, about 400 peo-ple in the northern bordertown of Ciudad Mier tookrefuge in the neighboring cityof Ciudad Aleman followingcartel gunbattles. That shelterhas since been closed andmost have returned to theirhomes.Michoacan state CivilDefense Director CarlosMandujano said about 700people spent Tuesday nightat a primitive water parkin the town of BuenavistaTomatlan, with most sleep-ing under open thatched-roof structures.Mandujano said stateauthorities were providingsleeping mats, blankets andfood for those in the shelter.Residents told localauthorities that gunbattlesbetween rival drug cartel fac-tions had made it too dan-gerous for them to stay inoutlying hamlets. The latestreports said arsonists wereburning avocado farms in thenearby town of Acahuato.“We woke up with fear(on Monday), but thingsappeared to have quieteddown. It wasn’t until later thatmorning that we saw SUVswith armed men driving byvery fast and shooting at eachother,” said a woman whodid not want to be named forsecurity reasons.Several displaced peoplesaid they would stay at theshelters all week before con-sidering going back to theirvillages.“I am not scared, but mychildren are,” said a mother,who asked not to be quotedby name because of fear of retaliation.The fighting in Michoacanis believed to involve rivalfactions of the Michoacan-based La Familia drug cartel,some of whose members nowcall themselves “The KnightsTemplar.”Mexico still has fewerpeople displaced by violencethan countries like Colombia,according to the Norway-based Internal DisplacementMonitoring Centre, whichtracks such figures. It esti-mates about 230,000 peoplein Mexico have been drivenfrom their homes, often to staywith relatives or in the UnitedStates. An estimated 3.6 mil-lion to 5.2 million people havebeen displaced by decades of drug- and guerrilla-war vio-lence in Colombia.Buenavista police chief Othoniel Montes Herrerasaid he has neither the man-power nor the armament topatrol rural areas frequent-ed by drug gangs. Sendingill-armed officers out there“would be certain death, andwe’re not thinking of puttingour personnel at that risk.”ISLAMABAD (AP) —Pakistan will use “all appro-priate means” to attack mili-tant hideouts inside the coun-try, the prime minister saidtoday, amid rising criticism of the nation’s security forces inthe wake of a deadly 16-hourassault on a naval base lastweekend.Yousuf Raza Gilani gaveno indication the army wasconsidering new offensivesalong the Afghan border,where most of the militantsin Pakistan are based alongwith other groups and affili-ates who are attacking U.S.troops in Afghanistan.The United States wants tosee action in North Waziristanregion especially, where adeadly Afghan Taliban factionis based, to help it put pres-sure on Afghan insurgents andenable it to begin withdrawingtroops later this summer after10 years of war.Washington has been qui-etly helping train Pakistansecurity forces in the north-west, but that cooperation hasfaltered amid several incidentsthat have exposed the fragilenature of ties between the twonations — most recently theunilateral May 2 raid in whichU.S. Navy SEALs killedOsama bin Laden.On Tuesday, Pentagonspokesman Marine Col.David Lapan said the UnitedStates was reducing the num-ber of its military trainers inPakistan, in a further sign of the deteriorating relationship.Lapan said there were morethan 200 trainers in Pakistan,but he provided no details onhow many had been with-drawn since Islamabad madeits request two weeks ago.Gilani’s remarks followed ameeting late Wednesday withdefense chiefs. He said thegovernment “will ensure thatterrorists hideouts are beingdestroyed using all appropri-ate means.”“It is clear that we are nowentering another definingphase in the struggle againstterrorists and for reconciliationand peace in Afghanistan,” hesaid, referring to Pakistan’sdesire to play a leading rolein any negotiations to end thewar in Afghanistan.Pakistan’s army hasattacked militants in severalborder regions over the lastfour years, but with limitedsuccess and public support.It has yet to attack NorthWaziristan, now consid-ered the hub of al-Qaida andTaliban activity, saying itstroops are too stretched.The weekend attack onthe base in the port city of Karachi was carried out bymilitants who had trainedin Waziristan, according toInterior Minister RehmanMalik. At least 10 peoplewere killed and two U.S. sup-plied aircraft destroyed in theattack, one of the most brazenin years.The raid raised fresh anxi-eties domestically and inter-national about the security of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons.MANILA, Philippines(AP) — Thousands of peoplealong the eastern Philippinecoastline were moving totemporary shelters today asa powerful typhoon packingstrong winds and plenty of rain roared toward the coun-try’s northeast.Typhoon Songda was notexpected to make landfall butwill skirt along shores withwinds of up to 93 miles (150kilometers) per hour and rain-fall of 1.2 inches (30 millime-ters), the government weatherbureau said.“It has a big radius, so itcan affect many areas evenif it does not make landfall,”said forecaster Mario Palafox.About 20 typhoons hit thePhilippines every year, kill-ing hundreds of people anddestroying crops despite gov-ernment efforts to minimizecasualties and damage byordering early evacuations.In central Albay province,Gov. Joey Salceda sent mili-tary trucks to begin moving250,000 residents from coast-al and landslide-prone villagesand areas in the path of debrisfrom the Mayon volcano.He also offered 11 pounds(five kilograms) of rice as anincentive for each family thatevacuates.Government offices inthe region were closed andflights canceled. More than7,000 people were strandedin ports after the coast guardbarred sea travel in areas withtyphoon warnings.In other provinces leadingup to the northwest, officialshave collected rubber boatsand food supplies and put res-cuers on standby.“Local government offi-cials have enough time to pre-pare, so we hope we have” nocasualties, presidential spokes-man Edwin Lacierda said.President Benigno AquinoIII left on a visit to Thailandtoday but instructed officialsto send him regular updates.
