Mexico bombings halt Volkswagen's plant operations

Volkswagen's manufacturing operations in Mexico had to be suspended after a series of recent bombings targeted natural gas pipelines. The natural gas pipelines are essential in powering equipment in Volkswagen's plants. The attacks, carried out by a rebel group in the state of Veracruz called the Popular Revolutionary Army, also suspended operations for Ford, Chrysler, General Motors, and Honda.

Volkswagen will have to remain closed at least until Pemex, the local oil company, can get the pipelines back up. Pemex expects to have them up and running sometime between Sunday and Monday. Until then, however, Volkswagen plants will remain closed.
