6 men found dead in cartel-type vests in Mexico border area

Authorities in the northern Mexico border state of Tamaulipas say six men wearing vests with the initials of a notorious drug cartel have been found dead near the city of Reynosa, across the border from McAllen, Texas

An official who was not authorized to be quoted by name said the six had all been shot in the head and all were found wearing military-style vests bearing the initials “CDG,” which stands for the Cartel del Golfo.

The criminal group has long dominated the area, but has been riven by internal factions and turf battles with remnants of the old Zetas cartel.
