Juárez drug violence not likely to go away soon, authorities say

Even after thousands of drug-related slayings in this border city, U.S. and Mexican law enforcement officials say that a war between rival cartels could continue for years – contradicting reports that one group had gained control over a key smuggling route.

"Our intelligence does not indicate that the Sinaloa cartel has taken over the Juárez corridor. However, they are making serious attempts to do so," said Joseph M. Arabit, special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration office in El Paso. "The upper hand changes from week to week because this is an ongoing struggle."
