Colombia's Most Wanted Captured

Desperate to escape the Colombian authorities, Don Mario—described by President Alvaro Uribe as "one of the most feared drug traffickers in the world—offered $1,000 for every killed cop on his trail. But the law (or at least what passes for it) eventually caught up to him, and Don Mario, who had a $2 million bounty on his head, was found "cowering like a dog" under a tree in northern Colombia. Don Mario, a.k.a. Daniel Rendon Herrera, was the boss of a paramilitary organization thought to be responsible for 3,000 murders in the last 18 months. The arrest marks a major coup for Uribe, who now has orchestrated the disarmament of most paramilitary organizations and the arrests of the leaders that refused to lay down their weapons.
