Mexico captures Knights Templar drug lord Servando 'La Tuta' Gomez

Mexican police say they have captured the country's most wanted drug lord, Servando "La Tuta" Gomez.

Mr Gomez, leader of the Knights Templar drug cartel, was arrested in Morelia in Michoacan state without a shot fired, police officials said.

His capture is a coup for the government of Enrique Pena Nieto in its fight against the drug cartels.
