Mexican Military Kills 25 Suspected ‘Zetas’

MERIDA INITIATIVE / 1 NOV 2010 BY INSIGHT CRIME EN
The Mexican military announced it had killed 25 suspected members of the Zetas criminal organization in the municipality of Treviño, Tamaulipas, while they rescued three kidnap victims from a farm, according to an Associated Press report. No military personnel were injured in the attack, and the press appeared to have little access to the site where the events occurred. The assault on the Zetas safe house comes just days after authorities discovered the bodies of 72 migrants that the group had supposedly assassinated in the Tamaulipas state.
