MEXICO CITY - Five men have been arrested in connection with an attack last week on a casino in the northern Mexican city of Monterrey that killed 52 people, the state governor of Nuevo Leon, Rodrigo Medina, said on Monday.

Medina said the five suspects were believed to be members of the Zetas drugs cartel, which has ravaged the state and other parts of Mexico.

The Mexican Attorney General's office on Friday offered a reward of 30 million pesos ($2.4 million) for information leading to the arrest of perpetrators of Thursday's attack.
