• Mexico snares brother of powerful drug cartel leader


    MEXICO CITY: Mexican federal forces have arrested the brother of the head of the powerful Jalisco New Generation drug cartel, who managed the group’s finances, authorities said Friday. Antonio Oseguera Cervantes, 57, was detained by police and soldiers without a shot fired on Thursday as he drove alone in a car in Tlajomulco de Zuniga town, western Jalisco state, said federal police chief Enrique Galindo. Oseguera’s arrest affects the cartel’s financial structure “in an important way,” Galindo said. Galindo said the suspect worked “under the direct orders of his brother,” cartel leader Nemesio Oseguera, alias “El Mencho.”
