Five men, two of them ex-military, carrying explosives, weapons, flak jackets and T-shirts with the letters “MFG” were arrested in Jalisco, El Universal is reporting. The explosives are from the military, authorities said during the press conference presenting the suspects and the armament seized. The “MFG,” they added, was a reference to the drug trafficking organizations Milenio, Familia (Michoacana), and Gulf (Cartel), three groups that have allegedly united to form an alliance against the feared and powerful Zetas organization, which was once the armed wing of the Gulf Cartel.
