Sicarios are "Presented" to the Media

Mexico City .- The Navy of Mexico presented to the media through a press conference as is usually customary when they apprehend sicarios the three people arrested last night, in the city of Cuernavaca, after a confrontation in which the leader of the Beltran Leyva cartel, Arturo Marcos Beltran Leyva, was killed.

The Navy reported that as the result of confromntation between the naval authorities and members of the criminal organization, one element of Marine Corps special forces was killed and was idenrified as Melquisedet Angulo Cordova.

The navy spokesman in Mexico also confirmed the death of six sicarios and it is reported that one of the sicarios committed suicide rather than get caught. It is not certain if he was already dead when he fell from one of the windows in the high rise apartments or or the fall did him in.

Also arrested was Castro Catalina Lopez, 44 years old, Gabriela Vega Perez, 18, and a man that his identity to this point was not known.

By looking at his face it looks like he recived a beating, as it usually happens when sicarios are caught alive, and I guess due to his injuries, he forgot his name. Not sure who the girls are, girfriends of Arturo?

At the apartment was also seized 40,000 U.S. dollars in cash, three rifles and two handguns, as well as 400 cartridges of different calibers.
