Early in 2007, the Mexican President Felipe Calderon declared war on his nation's drug traffickers. Since that time, drug-war-related violence has claimed the lives of 6,285 people-that's more than the total number of U.S. casualties in the war in Iraq.As part of an ongoing effort to tell the stories behind these devastating numbers, LATimes has assembled a series called "Mexico Under Siege." It includes an interactive map, a multimedia gallery full of harrowing (and sometimes graphic) documentary photography, a comprehensive question-and-answer section with some of the paper's drug-war-savvy reporters, and a filtration system for the site's many articles on the subject.
