Mexico ‘Clown’ Gunmen Kill Ex-Drug Chief Arellano Felix

 

 

 

” The authorities in Mexico have said gunmen dressed as clowns have shot dead a former leading member of a once-powerful and violent drug cartel.

 Francisco Rafael Arellano Felix, 63, was killed in a beach resort in Baja California in north-western Mexico.

He and his brothers controlled the drug trade on Mexico’s border with the United States in the 1990s.

But their Tijuana cartel was gradually weakened by the capture or killing of other leading members.

“He was hit by two bullets, one in the chest and one in the head,” said Isai Arias, a Baja California state government official.

The attack took place during a family party at a rented beach house in the tourist resort of Cabo San Lucas.”
