CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico -- Police have arrested five men accused of dozens of murders, including two mass killings at drug treatment centers in this northern Mexico border city.
Police say the men were members of the Sinaloa cartel, a violent gang entrenched in a brutal turf war for control of drug routes to the United States.
The men are accused of 45 different executions in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico's most violent city. They were arrested by law enforcement agents during a routine street patrol, according to a statement released Friday by federal police. More, HERE.

MEXICO CITY, Sept. 2 -- President Felipe Calderón pledged Wednesday to continue his full frontal attack -- including deployment of thousands of soldiers on the streets -- in the fight against the powerful drug cartels that threaten the national security of Mexico.
In his third state of the union address, which marks the halfway point in his six-year term, Calderón said that his government would reform civilian law enforcement and the courts but that the Mexican army would continue to lead the fight until local and state police forces are free of corruption. Those police are now slowly being retrained and vetted.
With unprecedented U.S. support, including $1.4 billion in aid, Calderón has tripled spending on security in a struggle for law and order that has left almost 14,000 people dead since he took office. The violence has turned border cities such as Ciudad Juarez into danger zones where a dozen people are shot dead a day and that U.S. citizens are warned to avoid. More, HERE.
