Mexican authorities captured Arturo Gallegos Castrellón, an alleged leader of the Aztecas street gang, in Ciudad Juárez. According to federal police, Gallegos, 32, said he was behind 80% of the murders committed since August 2009 in the border city, where more than 2,000 people have been killed this year. Authorities also say he confessed to ordering the March killings of two American citizens, one of whom worked at the Juárez consulate. The Aztecas gang is allied with the Juárez drug cartel.
