Spin will be interesting. In most countries people who blow things up and have guns and bombs are terrorists or narcos, in Mexico they are armed civilians.

When they burned busses and were armed with AK-47s they were just vandals.

Heck, what do you have to do to be a terrorist, nuke something?

Insurance fraud and possibly more. Here's the article as translated by Google.

More images for a security video of the Caribbean Ship ferry that exploded in Playa del Carmen on February 21 is already reviewed by experts from the PGR and could become the key evidence that it was an auto attack .

The video is part of the evidence given to the Criminal Investigation Agency by the attorney general's office of Quintana Roo. It would see, according to sources at the highest level of the state government, one of the owners of the shipping company, Roberto Borge Martín, father of today processed former governor Roberto Borge Angulo , and a subject so far unidentified that accompanied on the ferry crossing. According to consulted sources, the unknown man carried a backpack with him at the time of the collision in Cozumel.

He did not go down with her anymore in Playa del Carmen. A Borge Martin is seen leaving the ferry hastily, confirm sources who say they saw the video. Of the presence in the wharf of the co-owner of Barcos Caribe, other sources had already described other sources that describe how he watched the fire devouring one of his most expensive vessels and that, according to other shipping companies that cover the Cozumel-Playa del Carmen transshipment, he would have a sure of at least four million dollars.

The collection of that insurance would be the benefit of the alleged auto attack that would be aimed at destabilizing the current state government headed by Carlos Joaquín González with which the Borge family is confronted since it took power in the 2016 elections and highlighted the numerous thefts that Borge Angulo has in jail today. Asked about the version of the car bombing, the company Barcos Caribe rejected it categorically and said it was "a very low and baseless act".

The PGR, meanwhile, only confirmed that it has started an investigation folder since it became aware of the explosion of the ferry in which 26 people were injured, five of them Americans. He reported that experts from the Criminal Investigation Agency assigned to the General Coordination of Expert Affairs, experts in forensic photography, field criminals, fires and explosives and forensic chemistry work at the scene.

For its part, the Office of the Attorney General of Quintana Roo confirmed that it has already delivered to the PGR and the Secretariats of the Defense and Navy both the expertise and packaging of the explosion, as well as the device found on another Caribbean Ship ferry in the first March days, to determine if it is indeed explosives and how they got there.

The PGR has in its hands a real bomb on the outbreak of another bomb, and with it the opportunity to resolve an issue, in itself serious and relevant, to remove pressure in the case of Ricardo Anaya, the accusations against him of laundering money and the error of "filtering" the video of a private conversation that validates the strategy of "victimization" wielded by the front-runner and that, according to the end of the affair, would end up favoring it. Among the agents of espionage services in various countries call that deconcentration of operations in time and space. Here it is called curtains of smoke to divert attention from relevant facts with other relevant facts INSTANTAS:

1. VIOLENCE. The case of the ferry could cause a lot of damage to two of the main tourist destinations in the country: Cancun and the Riviera Maya. And just in case something was missing, yesterday the ranking of the fifty most violent cities in the world that the Civil Association Security, Justice and Peace made was known. Los Cabos ranked first, followed by Caracas, in Venezuela. In third place was Acapulco.

2. ADJUSTMENTS. While the head of government Miguel Ángel Mancera still does not make a decision regarding his political future, he moves his pieces. Two are his closest men: his private secretary Luis Serna and his now former chief of staff, Julio Serna. The latter has just added to the campaign of Alejandra Barrales, a frontist candidate for the capital's government. His relatives say that he has already taken the reins to bring the largest number of sectors to the PRD to convince them of his political proposal. Close to the candidate assure that maintains a consistent growth in the electoral preferences.

3. PRIZE. The Secretary of the Public Service, Arely Gómez, presented the Ministry of the Navy with the Culture of Gender Equality Prize in the Federal Public Administration "Amalia de Castillo Ledón". He highlighted that Semar has managed to institutionalize the principles of equality and non-discrimination to encourage women who wish to pursue a career in the Armed Forces. The second and third place were obtained by Infonavit and Conapred. Arely Gómez also presented the National Award for Public Administration to the Navigation Services in the Mexican Air Space (Seneam), the National Institute of Perinatology and the National Metrology Center.

No offense to Senor Google, but this translation left me head scratching as badly as before.
Is it saying that the bomb was part of some political chicanery?

Rhe owner of the ferry wanted to make the governor look bad but of course money of the insurance would be involved too.. Yes Gringal the elections are bringing the worst in people right now. Down here in Chiapas besides the usual killing because of land we have the killing between Verde and Pri and that goes on at a pretty good clip..and of course killing btween various parties inside each party as well, it is all pretty unreal.. The cartels are not the only bad guys..

Yes, so true.

This election will be as contentious as they come, lots of fake news by PRI and PAN as they desperately try to discredit AMLO and sway people away from him. I think this time it won't work, though. Lots of murders between parties. The Mexican underbelly exposed for all to see.

Stay safe Brigitte.
