Military kills Mexican drug lord Ignacio Coronel

The Mexican Military should try to take out the Leadership of the Cartels more often.

The Mexican government says security forces have killed Ignacio "Nacho" Coronel, a top member of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel.

Coronel was believed to be the right-hand man of Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman, Mexico's most-wanted drug lord.

His death is a major coup for President Felipe Calderon, who has declared "war" on the country's drug cartels.

The security forces say Coronel died in a shoot-out with an elite army group near the western city of Guadalajara.
