The Mexican army says it has arrested the man who probably ordered the brutal killing of 49 people a week ago.

The bodies were found dumped by a roadside near the city of Monterrey in northern Nuevo Leon state.

An army spokesman said Daniel Jesus Elizondo - known as El Loco, or The Madman - was arrested by troops.

The authorities say he is the local leader of the notorious Zetas drug cartel, which, they say, left threatening messages with the bodies.
