Mexico detains 93 police in corruption probe

• Washington Post
Mexican prosecutors announced Sunday they have put 93 police officers and investigators under house arrest on suspicion of aiding the Zetas, a feared gang of hit men tied to the Gulf drug cartel.

Corruption scandals have long plagued Mexican law enforcement, but the detentions represented one of the biggest single roundups of suspected officers in recent years. It came as investigators have been increasingly reporting finds of apparent payroll lists of police officers in the possession of drug traffickers.
