NUEVO LAREDO — The ongoing civil war within the Los Zetas drug cartel has resulted in
the splintering of groups within the rival factions and more murders just yards from the Texas border.
As Breitbart Texas has been reporting, for more than 10 months two rival factions of the Los Zetas cartel have been fighting for control of lucrative drug distribution territories and drug trafficking routes. The raging violence has resulted in almost daily cases of beheadings, dismemberments, drive by shootings, gun battles and other violent acts.
One side of the war involves various groups calling themselves Carteles Unidos that allegedly include Grupo Bravo, Vieja Escuela Z, Talibanes and members of the Gulf Cartel. That group has been invading territories previously controlled by the faction that went by the name Cartel Del Noreste (CDN). . . .
