Mexico cartels join forces

Two powerful Mexican drug cartels join forces to battle troops and other cartel.

    The Mexican government says nearly 23,000 people have died in drug-related violence since a military crackdown on cartels began in 2006.

    That announcement comes as officials face a new front in their war against the drug gangs.

    Two of Mexico's most powerful cartels have joined forces to battle government security forces as well as a third cartel seeking its own slice of the cross-border drug trade.

    Al Jazeera's Mariana Sanchez reports from Mexico City.
