MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's navy says it has captured a key regional leader of the hyper-violent Zetas drug cartel.

Sunday's communique from the navy identifies him as Carlos Carmona Caballero and it blames him for a series of violent incidents in Veracruz state, though it does not specify them.

It says he was caught in a car Friday with four other men who were also detained.

The Zetas have been involved in much of Mexico's drug war bloodshed in their battles with Mexico's other main drug organization, the Sinaloa Cartel.
