Mexico Drug War

Mexican army officials announced on Monday the arrest of a Zeta drug cartel member deemed responsible for the dumping the 49 bodies along a highway in northern Mexico last week.

The director of the Apodaca prison in Monterrey, Mexico, was fired yesterday along with several prison officials following Sunday's bloody riot that killed 44 inmates and led to the escape of 30 more prisoners.
