Mexico parades 'Zeta killers' on camera

Authorities hail success in their campaign to curb drug violence but it is unclear whether gangs truly fear the law.

    Mexican authorities say their redoubled efforts to stem drug violence in Veracruz is proving to be a success.

    They claim they have captured gunmen responsible for killing dozens of people in the eastern state of Veracruz.

    The police say the suspects are members of the so-called New Generation Gang, which is battling for control from the Zetas drug cartel.

    But uncertainty remains over whether this crackdown will make gangs more fearful of the police.
