"The Mexican army said Thursday it had captured a top drug cartel lieutenant who allegedly ordered an arson attack on a casino that killed 52 people in August. Carlos Oliva Castillo, alias 'The Frog,' a reputed leader of the extremely violent Zetas cartel, was detained by soldiers Wednesday in the northern city of Saltillo, said Defense Department spokesman Ricardo Trevilla. He has not yet been formally charged." (10/13/11)
