Smugglers Tried to Close Belize-Mexico Border

As of eleven o’clock this morning, the Belize/Mexico border crossing up north had been blocked by Mexican protestors, impeding traffic to and from the neighboring country. News Five confirmed with Mexican officials in Belize that the blockade was staged by a group of persons known as contraband smugglers who were reacting to efforts by Mexican authorities to clamp down on the illegal trade. While persons were allowed to pass periodically, the military/riot squad was on the scene to quell the situation. Late this evening, News Five confirmed with Mexican authorities that around four-thirty p.m., cooler heads prevailed and the protestors left the area.
