Elite troops take sides in Mexican drugs wars

The Kaibiles are infamous for their role in killing civilians during Guatemala's civil war. Their mission has since changed to help fight drug trafficking, but now they are faced with pursuing their own civil war.

Renegade and retired members of Kaibiles have been recruited by Mexico's Zetas drug gang, especially in the Peten and Alto Verapaz regions bordering Mexico.
