The closed-door testimony of ATF's acting director, saying that the Justice Department was obstructing a congressional investigation, has prompted an expansion of that ongoing probe into the controversial "Fast and Furious" weapons-smuggling operation.
Mexican authorities said Monday they had arrested a co-founder of the Zetas drug cartel who is suspected of involvement in the killing of a U.S. customs agent.
A co-founder of the Los Zetas drug cartel suspected in the broad daylight ambush killing of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent in February on a Mexican highway was arrested Sunday by law enforcement authorities in that country.
In the videotape, Rejon Aguilar told Mexican police that his gang - considered that country's most violent - had armed itself with weapons "bought in the United States."
"El Mamito's capture is emblematic because he was one of the original Zetas," he said.
