Army captures senior Los Zetas figure, narcos try to shut down Monterrey in reprisal

The Army captured Héctor Luna, aka El Tori, in Monterrey yesterday.  “El Tori is considered by military intelligence to be one of the most powerful members of the Los Zetas armed group  in northeastern Mexico,” according to El Universal. Within one half hour, cartel members staged 28 “narco-blockades” on roads and highways across the metropolitan region, according to Nuevo León’s Government Secretary. Motorists abandoned their cars and shopkeepers closed their stores, fearing shootouts between the authorities and the gangsters. Shots were also fired at various security installations in the city. El Tori was transported to Mexico City by the Army.  (Universal 6/10)
