CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico (AP) - Mexico's Defense Department reports it's captured nine more suspects in the killings of at least 145 people whose bodies were found starting early this month in pits in the border state of Tamaulipas.
The suspects were captured Monday in the Tamaulipas state capital, Ciudad Victoria. Three guns were seized during the arrests. They included alleged members of the Zetas cartel. 4 of the suspects are women.
The Zetas allegedly pulled passengers off buses in the township of San Fernando in late March, possibly as part of a forced recruitment effort.
