Crime and Terrorism
Abducted in Mexico

For years, Mexico has had the world's highest kidnapping rates. More than 10 people are abducted daily, but 97% of kidnappers remain at large according to a local NGO. Thus, families who pay off the criminals risk being ambushed by kidnappers again. One victim says that he was kidnapped just one month after he himself ransomed his grandfather. Is there a way to stop this vicious circle?
