Internecine Drug War

A new front opens in the internecine drug wars?

Drug lord aims to rid city of Zetas
By Dudley Althaus and Dane Schiller - Houston Chronicle

MEXICO CITY — Drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman purportedly has come gunning for the vicious Zetas gang on the South Texas border, leaving 14 of their butchered bodies and a message vowing to rid Nuevo Laredo of its criminal scourge.

“We have begun to clear Nuevo Laredo of Zetas because we want a free city and so you can live in peace,” proclaims a banner, under which were posed the bodies, as well as the gunmen who presumably work for Guzman.

“We are narcotics traffickers and we don't mess with honest working or business people.”
