Cali drug lord dished up to police

Bogota - A long-sought leader of the Cali drug cartel has been arrested after being spotted at a Bogota restaurant by another diner - a bodyguard for the national police chief. Jose Santacruz Londono, believed to be the number-three figure in the cartel that supplies 80 per cent of the world's cocaine, was arrested on Tuesday. The US government says Mr Santacruz, alias "Chepe," consolidated the gang's sales network in New York. He is the fourth leader of the cartel taken into custody within a month. AP
