'Anonymous' takes on Zetas, threatens exposure of allies

Video demands release of hacker held hostage by cartel

Associated Press

VERACRUZ, Mexico — An Internet video is threatening Mexico’s Zetas drug cartel with exposure of its allies in the police and news media unless the gang frees a kidnapped member of the international hacker movement known as “Anonymous.”

The statement is presented in the name of Anonymous by someone wearing a mask, but there is no way to authenticate the message’s origin.

The statement refers to an abduction in the coastal city of Veracruz without identifying the victim. It then threatens to release names, photos and property of Zetas allies in the area on Nov. 5 if the kidnapped activist is not freed or is harmed.

The video appears to have been posted in early October. It was first reported Friday by the global intelligence think tank Stratfor.
