Anonymous has reportedly abandoned plans to expose to expose Mexico’s notorious Zetas drugs cartel, after warnings that any such action would trigger a bloodbath.
Earlier this week, Anonymous claimed to be sitting on thousands of emails that implicated a number of people, including police officers, in shady connections with Zetas. The emails were expected to be released in the next few days.
There were reports, subsequently dismissed, that Anonymous was backing off due to threats to their own members. But it now seems that a fear of sparking a more general round of killings in Mexico has caused the group to have a rethink.
