Mexican court frees drugs baron Rafael Caro Quintero
Drugs baron Rafael Caro Quintero can be released from prison after serving 28 years for the kidnap and murder of a US agent, a court in Mexico has ruled.
Quintero's 40-year sentence for the 1985 killing of US drug enforcement agent Enrique Camarena was cut short after the court ruled that he should have been tried in a state rather than a federal court.
The murder strained US-Mexico ties and changed the war on drugs trafficking.
