MEX­ICO CITY: Mex­i­cans are among the big­gest soda drinkers in the world, so res­i­dents of the city of Ci­u­dad Al­tami­rano were hit hard when Coca-Cola and Pepsi closed their dis­tri­bu­tion cen­tres amid drug gang ex­tor­tion de­mands.

A store owner said the lo­cal drug gang was al­low­ing two com­pa­nies to bring in soda from nearby cities at 50% higher prices. Lo­cal stores can only buy from those firms.
