Whack-a-mole drug war: Mexico arrests police chief, soldiers for gang ties

Once again, some mole whackers get whacked.

AFP: Mexico arrests police chief, soldiers for gang ties: "Mexican authorities said that they had arrested a group of 25 people, including a local police chief and nine soldiers, for suspected ties to the notorious Zetas drug cartel.

The members of the Mexican security forces, detained over two days in the central Hidalgo state, were allegedly protecting Zetas members, said Damian Canales, the state's top public safety official.

The arrests were made near the northern state of Tamaulipas, where 183 bodies were found in mass graves in April and where 72 Central and South American migrants were massacred last year, both incidents blamed on the Zetas."
