Mexico's marines have apparently killed the leader of the Zetas drug gang.
Mexico Navy says that Heriberto Lazcano was killed in a gun battle with Marines on Sunday.
The navy used finger print tests to confirm Lazcanos identity.
Mexico's state prosecutor said Lazcano's body was later stolen by an armed gang, but no other details were given.
