An alleged Baja California gang leader wanted by Mexican federal authorities has been arrested in Riverside, U.S. authorities said. Jose Manuel Garibay Felix, 24, headed a Mexicali-based gang involved in drug trafficking, kidnapping and the murder of a Baja California state police officer in 2002, according to the complaint. At a raid on his property in 2002, Mexican authorities discovered a weapons' cache that included a .60-caliber rocket launcher, a machine gun, an AK47 and several other high-powered weapons.

Three men in uniform knocked on Simona Garibay's door in Costa Mesa early Monday, walking past U.S. and Mexican flags proudly planted in her front lawn. At first she was mystified that these strangers were asking for her by name. "I didn't know who they were," she said, too upset to say much more. "Then they told me the horrible news."

As his mother stood before a phalanx of TV cameras and microphones on her Costa Mesa lawn, a brave but pained smile on her face, tributes and honors for fallen Marine Cpl. Jose Angel Garibay came one after the other Wednesday. Simona Garibay clutched a framed certificate of U.S. citizenship granted posthumously to her son, the first Mexican-born and first Orange County serviceman killed in the Iraq war. U.S. and Mexican flags hung at half staff.
It was a lethal problem with a simple solution: Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center often couldn't provide dialysis to critically ill patients because specially trained nurses didn't work nights or Sundays. But the problem wasn't fixed until three patients in the last 10 months died after prolonged waits, according to doctors and medical records. Numerous others were endangered, saved only by stabilizing medications or transfer to smaller hospitals with round-the-clock treatment.

Years from now, three young Marines from the Los Angeles area will be remembered, and honored, for being among the first casualties of the second Persian Gulf war, and not because of their ethnicity.

The war in Iraq drew attention to the growing number of noncitizens in the U.S. military -- about 37,000. Ten were killed during the war, seven from California. Most were Latino. This is the second of four portraits of Green Card Marines who gave their lives. * The snapshot came straight from the deck of the Navy ship Ponce as it sailed toward Iraq. He was wearing his Marine fatigues, shiny black boots and the baddest pair of sunglasses.

The convoy rumbled north, through the heart of the Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. It was the fourth day of the war, and the men of Charlie Company had orders to capture the Saddam Canal Bridge on the city's northern edge. The Marines were taking heavy fire. Then there was an ear-splitting blast. A rocket-propelled grenade ripped open one of the amphibious assault vehicles, lifting it off the ground. A thick, dark cloud filled the vehicle's interior.
