Mexican vigilantes vow to crush drug gang

Group calling itself the "armed wing of the people" says it will eradicate the infamous Zetas drug cartel.

    A group calling themselves the Matazetas, or "Zetas killers" in English, has emerged in the Mexican city of Veracruz.

    The group has vowed to protect Mexicans from the notorious Zetas drug gang and claim they were involved in the killing of 49 people last week who they claim were associated with the Zetas.

    Mexican authorities, however, describe the Matazetas as just another criminal gang.
