Chaos and Terror Erupt near Texas Border as Cartel Clashes with Mexican Army

NUEVO LAREDO, Tamaulipas — Cartel gunmen and Mexican soldiers clashed throughout the streets of this border city for more than a day in a series of gun battles, spreading terror among local residents.

The violence began early in the morning when Mexican military forces carried out a series of raids aimed at capturing the leadership of the Los Zetas faction called Cartel Del Noreste.

The violence in Nuevo Laredo began over the weekend when a team of cartel gunmen shot and killed the warden of the local prison.

While a motive has not been established, the murder is likely tied to the recent transfer of inmates out of the city, law enforcement sources revealed.

Editor’s Note: Breitbart Texas traveled to the Mexican States of Tamaulipas, Coahuila, and Nuevo León to recruit citizen journalists willing to risk their lives and expose the cartels silencing their communities.
