The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Mex­ico’s gov­ern­ment has moved about 40,000 fed­eral po­lice, sol­diers and marines into sev­eral restive south­ern states to try to safe­guard Sun­day’s midterm elec­tions, a source close to the op­er­a­tion said on Satur­day. The force will be spread among Oax­aca, Chi­a­pas, Guer­rero and Mi­choa­can states, where a union and other rad­i­cal groups have vowed to dis­rupt the vote.
