Hundreds of women have been killed in the Mexican-American border region of Ciudad Juarez since 1993. The victims are often raped, tortured, & mutilated. Most are poor. The murder rate in Mexico is appalling, but nowhere in Mexico are women so sought out for horrifying violence. There have been 3 convictions. All claimed they were tortured into giving false confessions. Women in the province have campaigned for justice & protection but the killings continue.
