Mexican security forces have killed one of the most wanted drug traffickers in the country.

Beltran Leyva, knownas "The Boss of Bosses," was killed by military personnel in the southern city of Vuernavaca. Leyva was killed just five days later after escaping another military operation that targeted him. Mexican President Felipe Calderon made a bold statement to the press saying Leyva's death is proof that his country is winning the war against drug traffickers.
