Mexican Navy Raid Kills Arturo Beltran Leyva in Shootout at Upscale Apartment

Two hundred sailors raided an upscale apartment complex and killed a reputed Mexican drug cartel chief ‘boss of bosses’ Arturo Beltran Leyva and three members of his cartel in a two-hour gunbattle — a significant advance in President Felipe Calderon’s drug war.

Cartel gunmen hurled grenades that injured three sailors — at least 10 explosions heard. The Beltrán-Leyva brothers have dominated drug trafficking — cocaine and heroin — across the border with Arizona.
