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.

The video’s speakers say they are part of a vigilante force, working “of the people and for the people.” But the Associated Press reports that they probably are from a group linked to the rival Sinaloa cartel, because of “the language and style of the declaration.”

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.”
