CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — Police officers in Mexico's most violent city have been forced to live in guarded hotels after targeted attacks last month killed at least eight officers and wounded three.

The mayor of Ciudad Juarez, Hector Murguia, made the move to protect all 2,500 members of the city's police force as a local drug cartel threatened to kill an officer a day.
