Members of the terrifying Mexican drug cartel, Los Tlacos leaked a horrifying video showing their henchmen lining up men from their rival gang before mass executing them. The seven-minute video saw members of La Bandera, part of the Guerreros Unidos cartel, on their knees and being taunted while being held captive in the middle of the forest in Iguala, Guerrero. Spanish publication El País reported there were 20 men in total who were mass executed by the gang.

Speaking of gang-related news, Carlos 'El Cholo' Enrique Sanchez, the former lieutenant of a powerful Mexican drug cartel was found dead in Guadalajara in March. His body was found wrapped in garbage bags with two signs pinned to it with knives. One of them read, "The traitor El Cholo'. In 2020, Mexican drug lord El Marro, the head of the Santa Rosa de Lima cartel which terrorized north-central Mexico for years, was arrested after years of evading arrest. In November 2020, Roberto Gonzalez Montes, the leader of a drug cartel linked to the massacre of a Mormon family in Mexico which left nine dead, was arrested.

The La Bandera gang is reportedly an armed wing of the Guerreros Unidos, a cartel connected to the 2014 kidnapping of 43 students in Ayotzinapa. Los Tlacos members were heard accusing them of "extorting and killing innocent people" in the video. A narrator was heard saying, "We told them and the time has come, this turf already has an owner. People from Iguala, here are all those who extorted money and who were killing innocent people and women. The garbage that has terrified this beautiful city," El País reported.

The narrator also accused mayor-elect David Gama Perez of alleged ties with La Bandera's leader Chucho Brito who the kneeling men referred to as their "boss." One of the members also admitted that Brito had a direct line with the mayor's office. The kneeling men were seen being tortured by Los Tlacos members who were pulling their hair and pointing guns at their faces while interrogating them. Hours before the video made it on the Internet, gang members left four dismembered bodies in front of Gama Perez's home, according to the report.

Bodies of the other 16 people are yet to be discovered. The Guerrero State Office of the Attorney General said they are continuing the investigation to locate people responsible for this criminal act. Gama Perez's office has yet to provide a comment on the matter.
