Yet in the two years since he came to power, Mr Peña Nieto has indeed followed his predecessor’s path, in the sense that his armed forces have killed or captured a series of Mexico’s “most wanted” drugs kingpins.

In 2009 the attorney general published a list of the 37 most wanted drug traffickers, 33 of whom have now been detained or killed.
