Direction of Civil Protection called on the community not directly observe the solar eclipse that will be presented in Ciudad Juarez, said the Director General of Ecology and Civil Protection, Raul de Leon Apraez. .

It was necessary to use special eye protection, because to do so could have severe eye damage, even losing it.

He said that not just any sunglasses protect the eyes, so consider it necessary to ask the experts what type of material is indicated.

Another way to observe the eclipse is to make a hole in a card so that the light is projected on the floor.

The eclipse occurs when the Moon’s shadow does not cover completely the Sun and the star is seen as a luminous ring.

Was also observed in Baja California Norte, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey.

IN ASIA AND THE UNITED STATES ALSO BE APPRECIATED

Millions of people in Asia and the western United States on Monday witnessed an annular eclipse of the sun, marveling at the strange spectacle of a “ring of fire” across the heavens.

The annular eclipse, in which the moon passes the sun, but leaving only a golden ring around its edges, was also witness to a singular event as virtually had a return in time, because it was seen first Monday morning in Asia and then in the last afternoon of Sunday in the western U.S..

In some parts of the United States were sold cameras with special filters to take pictures of the astronomical phenomenon. In several parts, as in Reno (Nevada) and Oakland (California), meetings were organized to witness the eclipse.

There were also people from neighboring states and Canada who traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to enjoy the eclipse in one of the best places to watch. Older people threw shouts and the children screamed with excitement when the moon crossed the sun and started to form the halo of light.

In Japan, organized tours to better see the eclipse, either to pleasure boats and private aircraft. Similar events were held in China and Taiwan.

The eclipse was broadcast live on television in Tokyo, where there was not a solar eclipse since 1839. The Taipei Astronomical Museum opened before dawn on Monday and Hong Kong Space Museum set up telescopes with solar filters outside their building on the waterfront of Kowloon.

Japanese television sent teams to observe the phenomenon from the top of Mount Fuji. They also sent a team to a zoo south of Tokyo to capture the reaction of chimpanzees, but they do not seem to notice.

A light rain fell in Tokyo at the beginning of the eclipse, but the clouds thinned as the eclipse reached its maximum, which gives almost perfect condition.

“It was a very mysterious,” said Kaori Sasaki, who joined a crowd in downtown Tokyo to see the phenomenon. “I’ve never seen anything like this.”

Gunmen ambushed and killed three state prosecutors in front of a school

Police respond to the scene where three state prosecutors were killed in front of a school in Juarez, Mexico, on Wednesday.

Gunmen ambushed and killed three state prosecutors in front of a school in the border city of Juarez on Wednesday, authorities said. The slain prosecutors were investigators for the office’s anti-extortion unit, said Arturo Sandoval, spokesman for the Chihuahua State Attorney General’s Office.

A 12-year-old was injured in the attack, witnesses said.

Students at the school, about 50 meters from the shooting scene, screamed as the sound of guns filled the air, according to witnesses. Police were searching the area for suspects Wednesday.

The attack came just days before federal police are expected to pull back forces from the violence-plagued border city and hours before the popular band Mana was scheduled to perform a peace concert there.

Juarez is Mexico‘s most violent city and has become a symbol of the brutal realities of the nation’s drug war, which has claimed more than 34,600 lives in less than five years.

Thousands of federal police have been patrolling Juarez since they officially took over its security operation from the Mexican military in April.

Earlier Wednesday, authorities in Chihuahua state’s capital, also called Chihuahua, said six people were killed in a shootout inside a house.

Other Mexican states also saw violence Wednesday.

At the University of Advanced Studies in Saltillo, Cuahuila, professors made students huddle in an assembly hall as a series of shootouts shook the neighborhood.

“We were all scared, calling home. They had us there for an hour,” student Ian Carlo Massu Davila said.

The Zeta Killers to rid the country of the feared Zetas cartel!

The federal government has announced a fresh security operation aimed at regaining control over the eastern coastal state of Veracruz, where entrenched criminal organizations and a paramilitary-style gang have unleashed a wave of deadly drug-war violence.

In a formal and subdued setting before a portrait of national hero Benito Juarez, members of Mexico’s national security council said Tuesday evening that only the state had the authority to combat criminal groups in the country’s ongoing conflict against traffickers.

The statements made an indirect reference to the so-called Mata Zetas, or Zeta Killers, an apparently well-armed and well-trained new gang that surfaced in late July. The Zeta Killers claim their only goal is to rid the country of the violent and feared Zetas cartel. The group has called on Veracruz residents to stop paying extortion “taxes” to the Zetas.

“Those who seek justice by their own hand, or invade the state in its intransferable duties, become delinquents, and the government will apply to them the full force of the law,” Interior Secretary Jose Francisco Blake Mora said.

Mexico’s federal government in recent days has aggressively sought to dispel the notion that the Zeta Killers are a “true” paramilitary. An increase in such vigilante violence would more closely echo the worst years of Colombia‘s long armed conflict, where paramilitary violence was rampant.

It’s a parallel that both Mexican and U.S. authorities strive to avoid, analysts and reports have said, and there are many differences between the drug war experiences of Mexico and Colombia.

Blake stood at attention alongside top security and military officials, as well as Veracruz Gov. Javier Duarte, as the government said it would seek to reinforce local police units in the state and root out corruption in the state police force. Last week, the government said it would be sending more troops and federal police to combat the organized crime groups in Veracruz.

The Zeta Killers’ declaration of war against the Zetas has resulted in a statewide outbreak of intense fighting and reports of kidnappings. On Sept. 20, 35 bodies were dumped on a busy boulevard near the Veracruz port, a gruesome act for which the Zeta Killers have claimed responsibility.

The government’s new Operation Safe Veracruz appears modeled on previous multi-agency operations that the administration of President Felipe Calderon has undertaken in other regions of the country since he took office in late 2006.

Calderon launched the government’s campaign against Mexican drug cartels with a military-led operation in his home state of Michoacan. Enforcement pushes elsewhere have produced mixed results. In Chihuahua state, where violent Ciudad Juarez is located, a military and federal operation corresponded with an increase in claims of human-rights violations by government forces.
