It may feel as though Mexico's drug war can be summed up in one word: bodies. But there's a lot more to it than meets the eye—or hits the morgue. GlobalPost uncovers five things you may not know:
- Confiscated bling has its own museum: Cartel-fighting police end up with drug-related loot, which ends up on display at a closed-door museum. Among the "exhibits": high-tech spyware, gold-plated guns and diamond-encrusted pistols. Video tour here.
- Texas plays a part: Of the record number of guns confiscated and traced to the US, most hail from the Lone Star state.
- So does Twitter: Mexican "Twitteros" have apparently used the social network to warn each other about drunk-driving checkpoints.
