Mexico arrests Juarez drug cartel leader

0

MEXICO CITY: Mexican police have captured suspected Juarez drug cartel leader Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, whose gang engaged in turf wars that have left thousands of people dead, authorities said on Thursday. Carrillo Fuentes, alias “El Viceroy,” was arrested by federal police in Torreon, a city in the northern state of Coahuila, a spokesman for the national security commission told Agence France-Presse. His capture gives President Enrique Pena Nieto another victory against the country’s major drug traffickers at a time of national outrage over fears that 43 students were killed by a police-backed gang.
