Zetas gang leader rearrested in Mexico: officials

MEXICO CITY, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 13th Augst,2016) - Mexican police have rearrested a top member of the violent Zetas drug gang who was freed last year, officials said Friday. Federal officers detained Luis Reyes Enriquez, known as "Z12", one of the founders of the cartel. The group is considered to be one of the forces behind a wave of deadly violence in Mexico.

Reyes was freed by a judge last year after eight years in jail on organized crime charges. He has now been rearrested more than a year later after another judge reversed the decision, officials said. "He is considered a causer of violence and responsible for transferring drugs in the states of Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas," federal police anti-drugs chief Juan Carlos Silva told the media.
