Police in Mexico have arrested a gang facing drug-trafficking charges in the US. The group includes a notorious alleged drug lord known as 'Barbie' who's been blamed for a vicious turf war featuring shoot-outs and bodies being hung from bridges. His real name is Edgar Valdez and he could be extradited to America, where he has a 2 million dollar bounty on his head. The arrest comes just hours after the government said about ten per cent of the federal police have been sacked as part of a campaign to root out corruption.
