The Mexican Navy has released new video of the aftermath of the shootout between them and the Zeta drug cartel.
Authorities say one Seaman and a dozen cartel members were killed along Falcon Lake. Mexican officials say the military was on patrol and were fired upon by Zeta members. Authorities found a drug camp where they seized guns, ammunition and bullet proof vests. Naval officers say the drug camp was used as a launching point for marijuana headed to the United States.
