Hermosillo scorecard: “Deaths: 46; Persons arrested: 0

Some 20,000 citizens marched in Hermosillo, Sonora to demand accountability for the fire in the ABC Day Care Center. One banner read: “Deaths: 46, Persons arrested: 0, Total Impunity.” Attorney General Eduardo Medina Mora pledged a complete investigation. Daniel Karam, the head of the Social Security Institute, fired four Institute officials in Sonora and ordered four other day care centers operated by the owners of ABC to be closed down.  The spouses of two of the owners – both senior officials in the government of PRI Governor Eduardo Bours–resigned their posts.
