A group in Mexico identified as Los Mata Zetas, or the Zetas Killers, has made a video vowing to kill members of the notorious drug cartel that recently decapitated an Internet commentator and hanged disemboweled bloggers from a bridge.

In a statement Monday night, the Interior Department said the attorney general’s office “has opened an investigation into the videos that express the aforementioned ideas and are circulating on the Internet.”
