Mexico says catches senior Knights Templar drug gang boss

“Mexico said on Monday it had captured a leader of the Knights Templar, a violent drug cartel that has created a major security problem for President Enrique Pena Nieto.

The attorney general’s office said security forces arrested Dionisio Loya Plancarte, known as ‘El Tio’ (‘The Uncle’), a top member of the Knights Templar, which has clashed with vigilante groups in the western state of Michoacan this year.”
