Mexico State Congress Asks Ban of Video Game

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) - Legislators in the Mexican border
state of Chihuahua have asked federal authorities to ban a violent
video game based on the drug cartel shootouts in Ciudad Juarez.

About 6,000 people have died in drug-related violence in Ciudad
Juarez in 2009 and 2010, making the city one of the deadliest in
the world.

Ubisoft Corp. says it will soon release "Call of Juarez: The Cartel." Promotions show armed characters ready to open fire on a city street.

The slogan on a website for the game reads: "Take justice into
your own hands and experience the lawlessness of the modern Wild
West."

Chihuahua state legislator Ricardo Boone Salmon said Sunday the game teaches children the wrong values.
