Head of Mexican Drug Cartel Arrested

Hosted by

Yesterday, off the coast of Mexico, the US Coast Guard boarded a fishing boat and arrested Javier Arellano Felix, the leader of what US officials call the "most violent drug-trafficking operation in the Tijuana-Baja California area." The Arellano-Felix organization is accused of murder, kidnap and torture in order to maintain control of drug smuggling from Mexico to California. Greg Krikorian covers federal law enforcement and homeland security for the Los Angeles Times.
