Mexico’s drug cartel shows its might during president’s visit

Mexico drug cartel puts on a show of strength and defiance during a visit by the Mexican president.

The Mexican government is analysing a video showing dozens of gunmen and armoured vehicles, apparently belonging to the powerful Jalisco drug cartel.

It seems to be a show of force before a visit by President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to three states where the group has a stronghold.
