In July, there were explosions in the same street in a restaurant business and on the porch of an apartment complex. Because of the many explosions in the city and neighboring communities, the municipality has taken additional security measures. More than 100 explosions have already been counted this year. The explosions are often linked to conflicts between drug criminals.
