Pages blackened in report about cleared general


MEXICO CITY — One day after this country angered U.S. officials by publishing an entire 751page U.S. case file against former Defense Secretary Salvador Cienfuegos, the Mexican prosecutor­s who exonerated him released their own version.

But the report released Sunday by the Mexican Attorney General’s Office included a 226-page stretch with every page blacked out, followed shortly by a 275-page stretch of blacked-out pages.

The U.S. Justice Department said releasing the full report of evidence violated a legal assistance treaty and called into question whether the U.S. can continue to share informatio­n.
