Spanish police thwart drug cartel assassination attempt

“Spanish police say they have arrested seven people in the southern town of Cala de Mijas on suspicion of planning to assassinate a businessman on orders from a Colombian drug cartel. A police statement Saturday said the investigation began in 2014, when evidence emerged that a gang in Madrid was being paid 90,000 euros ($101,740) to travel south and kill ‘a Marbella resident and two bodyguards.’”
