Mexico Extortion Wave_Rich.jpg

A police vehicle is parked next to the clinic owned by Dr. Roman Gomez Gaviria on the outskirts of Mexico City, Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013. Security has been posted outside of Dr. Gavirira's clinic after he was threatened by a criminal gang demanding protection money. Shakedown rackets, which have long targeted bars, casinos and shadier businesses linked to drug traffickers, are increasingly going after legitimate businesses like Gaviria�s clinic as extortions across the country are rising. Targets include everything from multinational businesses to corner pharmacies and unsuspecting tourists. (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte)
