MEXICO CITY - Mexico has extradited a drug gang leader to face charges that he played a key part in the daylight execution of a US consulate employee two years ago, officials said on Friday.

Arturo Gallegos is suspected of ordering the killing of a U.S. consulate worker on the streets of Ciudad Juarez in an ongoing effort by the Barrio Azteca drug gang to control a smuggling route, officials said.

He was handed over to US law enforcement officials earlier this week, according to a statement from the Mexican attorney general's office.
