In late 2010, shortly after the publication of her book “Los Señores del Narco” (The Lords of Drug Trafficking), Mexican journalist Anabel Hernández* was told by sources close to her that Genaro García Luna, head of the chief law enforcement agency in Mexico during the administration of former president Felipe Calderón, intended to have her killed for the accusations the journalist raised against him in her book.

Hérnandez reported the threats to local authorities in Mexico City and received police protection.
