Mexican federal forces have arrested the leader of the notorious Zetas drug cartel, officials say.

Omar Trevino Morales, alias Z-42, was arrested in a pre-dawn raid in a suburb of the northern city of Monterrey, federal officials said.

The Mexican government had offered a 30 million peso (£1.3 million) reward for his capture on weapons and organised crime charges.

The suspect is the brother of Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, described as the most bloodthirsty leader of Mexico’s most violent cartel.

Miguel Angel was arrested in July 2013, almost a year after marines killed the Zetas’ other biggest leader, Heriberto Lazcano – known as El Lazca.
