Mexico killings tied to drug cartel

Revenge attack hits family of soldier who died in raid that killed most wanted drugs boss.

    Armed men in Mexico have killed the family of a special forces marine involved in fighting a powerful drug leader.

    The attack took place just hours after the military honoured the officer as a national hero.

    He died last week in a raid that also killed cartel head Arturo Beltran Leyva.

    Franc Contreras reports.
