Mexican authorities arrested two more people in their search for the drug lords blamed for the killing of a Roman Catholic cardinal and six others in an airport shoot-out, AP reports from Guadalajara. Two Mexican-Americans were arrested in Tijuana early on Saturday in connection with the killings, the federal Attorney General's office said. Juan Enrique Bazones Hernandez, 18, and Roman Torres Mendez, 23, were identified as gunmen who participated in the shoot-out on 24 May that killed Cardinal Juan Jesus Posadas Ocampo. They worked for the rivals of the drug lord Joaquin Guzman, who police say was the intended target of the gunmen.
