    Navy soldiers frisk a driver at a checkpoint in Mazatlan September 9, 2011. Federal police captured Jean Baptiste Kingery last week at a house in the Pacific tourist town of Mazatlan in Sinaloa state, where they seized a small cache of guns and found a Hummer sports utility vehicle parked outside. Kingery's capture raises the possibility powerful cartels are manufacturing weapons inside Mexico and not just smuggling arms from the United States, the attorney general's office said.

    A soldier walks behind a sign reading "Closed Access" next to a casino which was attacked earlier in Monterrey August 25, 2011. Masked gunmen killed at least 53 people at the casino in northern Mexico on Thursday, leaving it ablaze with patrons trapped inside in one of the worst attacks in a major Mexican city in years. Analysts and officials said the brazen assault had all the hallmarks of drug cartels that have plunged Monterrey and other parts of Mexico into a spiral of violence.
