MEXICO CITY - A Mexican court said on Wednesday that two army generals, one retired and one still serving, should remain in jail and face trial in one of the highest-profile cases linking the military to organized crime.

Retired General Tomas Angeles and General Roberto Dawe were arrested in May of last year and turned over to the country's organized crime unit for investigation.

The court rejected an appeal by the generals, who were senior figures in the government's crackdown against drug cartels under former Mexican President Felipe Calderon, whose term in office ended at the start of December.
