Five suspects detained in casino attack
MONTERREY — Nuevo Leon state Gov. Rodrigo Medina said Monday that police have arrested five alleged members of the Zetas drug cartel suspected in an arson attack on a casino that killed 52 people in northern Mexico.
Mr. Medina said police are looking for two other suspects.
He said that police are investigating whether the attack in the city of Monterrey was in retaliation for not paying extortion money.
The Thursday attack at the Casino Royale in Monterrey was one of the deadliest on an entertainment center in Mexico since President Felipe Calderon launched an offensive against drug cartels in late 2006.
Court lifts order, allows newspaper to publish
CARACAS — A lawyer for a Venezuelan newspaper said Monday that a court has lifted an order that barred the weekly from being published.
A judge had ordered the newspaper to temporarily cease publishing after it ran a front-page photomontage ridiculing six high-ranking female officials and depicting them as cabaret dancers.
Lawyer Pedro Aranguren said the court lifted the order on Monday.
He told the Venezuela TV channel Globovision that the court also ordered the newspaper not to publish text or images that offend or insult women or impugn the reputation of public officials.
Venezuela prosecutors and court officials did not immediately comment on the decision to allow the newspaper to resume publishing.
