Mexico's federal police say they have arrested 20 suspected members of the Knights Templar drug gang after raiding a secret meeting near a cemetery.
Police say they got a tip about the meeting near the city of Apatzingan in the western state of Michoacan.
Police said Monday they have caught 40 members of the gang over the last three weeks.
When police appeared at the meeting place Monday, the suspects tried to flee. But official say they were caught with 13 rifles, seven pistols and eight hand grenades. One of the suspects nicknamed "The Cook" allegedly burned victims' bodies.
