Port security patrol the delta of the River Balsas in the port of Lazaro Cardenas November 20, 2013. When the leaders of Mexico and China met last summer, there was much talk of the need to deepen trade between their nations. Down on Mexico's Pacific coast, a drug gang was already making it a reality. The Knights Templar cartel, steadily diversifying into other businesses, became so successful at exporting iron ore to China that the Mexican Navy in November had to move in and take over the port in Lazaro Cardenas, a city that has become one of the gang's main cash generators.

A shot-up police vehicle with smashed windows sits next to a pool of blood near the offices of the Italian oil company Agip at Port Harcourt in Nigeria's troubled Niger Delta Region January 24, 2006. Eight policemen and one civilian were killed on Tuesday when an armed gang in military fatigues attacked the offices of Agip in Nigeria and robbed a bank. It was not clear if the attack, in the southern city of Port Harcourt, was carried out by the same group that has kidnapped four foreign oil workers and crippled Nigerian oil output by a tenth during a month-long campaign of violence in the world's eighth largest exporter.
