Mexican town hit by kidnappings

Valle de Bravo has seen a drop in the number of tourists due to a recent wave of kidnappings.

    The Mexican resort town of Valle de Bravo has witnessed several kidnappings recently, causing fear and tensions among residents and visitors.

    The tourist town is no longer teeming with tourists and members of Mexico's elite due to fear of further kidnappings.

    A new federal police force called the Gendarmarie is being deployed to deal with issues related to robbery, extortion and kindapping.
