Another Capo Caught
The Mexican army says it has captured the leader of the once-powerful Tijuana cartel, Luis Fernando Sanchez Arellano.
In the 1990s, the cartel controlled much of the drugs flow from the northern Mexican city of Tijuana to the United States.
But it was dealt a severe blow after the arrest of four of the brothers leading it and the killing of a fifth.
Luis Fernando Sanchez Arellano is the nephew of the Arellano Felix brothers who originally founded the cartel.
Blame el Tri and the Mundial:
An army official said Mr Sanchez Arellano was captured on Monday afternoon shortly after the Mexican football team reached the last 16 of the Fifa World Cup by beating Croatia.
The security forces often time their raids to coincide with holidays or events when they know their target and its bodyguards may be less vigilant.
