MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican security forces have captured Omar Trevino Morales, leader of the bloody Zetas drug cartel and one of the country's most wanted men, security officials said on Wednesday.

Trevino, brother of captured ex-Zetas leader Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, was arrested in the city of Monterrey in the early hours of Wednesday, a senior government official said.

The detention of Morales comes just days after the capture of Servando Gomez, leader of the Knights Templar drug gang, who was the most wanted capo still at large in Mexico.
