U.S. Ends Cooperation in Mexican Probes

MEXICO CITY - The U.S. Treasury Department (news - web sites), angry about the leaking of confidential information, has stopped sharing information with Mexico on everything from money laundering to terrorism financing, a blow to cross-border crime fighting.

Before the leak, U.S. officials praised the Mexican government for working closely with them to fight organized crime. The increased cooperation had led to several high-profile arrests, including those of drug smugglers on both sides of the border.

Mexico Attorney General Rafael Macedo de la Concha said Friday the move affects monitoring of about 30,000 financial transactions a day. He promised to regain U.S. confidence.

"We have to re-establish this flow of information," he said, adding: "We have worked in confidence with the U.S. government, and I think we can convince them this was a special case."
