Druglord Seized

BOGOTA, Colombia () -- A special army and police team has captured the younger brother of the leaders of the Cali cartel, one of the world's most powerful drug organizations, Colombia's chief prosecutor announced on Friday.


Prosecutor-General Alfonso Valdivieso said in a local radio interview the team captured Jorge Eliecer Rodriguez Orejuela, brother of Miguel and Gilberto, during an operation late Thursday in the center of the city of Cali, about 290 kilometers southwest of Bogota. The official said the capture was part of a wider operation throughout Cali and surrounding towns involving 3,000 soldiers and police.
