Arturo Beltran Leyva, a Mexican drug kingpin nicknamed the ‘boss of bosses’, was killed in a dramatic shoot-out with the navy south of Mexico City.

In a carefully executed attack, heavily armed Mexican marines quietly evacuated an upscale apartment complex in Cuernavaca before some 200 troops stormed the building and demanded the surrender of Beltran Leyva. Gunmen fired on the marines who then launched an attack that lasted nearly two hours. Beltran Leyva was Mexico’s third most wanted man, with a 1.5-million-dollar reward on offer for information leading to his capture. Beltran Leyva is the biggest drug lord to be taken down in Calderon’s drug war, which is ending its bloodiest year yet. His absence is expected to shake up Mexico’s narcotics trafficking networks eager to take over his billion-dollar business.
