    Fourth Mexican general arrested over links to drug cartels

    Another Mexican general has been arrested on suspicion of having links to the country’s drug cartels, Mexican Defense Department has said.

    Retired Lt. Col. Silvio Hernandez Soto, who was brought in for questioning, was the fourth high-ranking officer arrested, the department said on Friday.

    The allegations against Soto have not been announced. None of the officers has yet been charged.

    Retired Gen. Tomas Angeles Dauahare and Gen. Roberto Dawe Gonzalez were detained on Tuesday. Retired Gen. Ricardo Escorcia was brought in for questioning on Thursday.

    Angeles Dauahare was appointed as assistant defense secretary in 2006. He left the post in 2008 when he retired.

    Dawe Gonzalez is currently assigned to a military base in the western state of Colima.

    Angeles Dauahare and Dawe Gonzalez are suspected of protecting the members of the Beltran Leyva cartel, an official at the Attorney General's Office said.

    Drug-related violence has left more than 50,000 people dead since President Felipe Calderon launched a crackdown on drug cartels in 2006.
