Mexico extradites alleged cocaine kingpin to New York

Reuters: "Jesus Zambada, 50, alias "The King," was taken from a top security prison in the border city of Matamoros and put on a plane to New York, where he has been indicted in a federal court in Brooklyn, Mexican officials said Wednesday.

The extradition is part of a five-year offensive against cartels by President Felipe Calderon, who discussed the drug war with President Barack Obama in Washington on Monday.

Zambada was arrested after a shoot-out in Mexico City in 2008. Among his 10 bodyguards were two active police officers." read more
