The military says troops patroling in the Privada Esmeralda neighborhood on Monday detained a man who was watching over the migrants. A statement Wednesday gives no other details of the rescue in Nuevo Laredo, which is across the border from Laredo, Texas.
Soldiers and federal police have been increasingly rescuing migrants kidnapped by drug cartels. Authorities say migrants are kidnapped for ransom or to be forced to work for the crime syndicates.
