Another powerful drug cartel boss has been arrested in Mexico.
Carlos Beltran-Leyva was arrested last Wednesday in Sinaloa.
He was later taken to Mexico City where he is expected to be prosecuted.
Mexican authorites say he is the brother of Arturo Beltran-Leyva, the drug boss who was killed on Dec. 16, 2009 in Cuernavaca, Morelos during a raid.
Government leaders say Arturo's takedown is the biggest blow to the drug cartel and the nationwide fight against them since Felipe Calderon became president of Mexico.
