Los Zetas - the only drug cartel that kidnaps?

Father Alejandro Solalinde Guerra, a a very, very brave man who does invaluable work for migrants in Oaxaca, in a meeting with the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said that Los Zetas now carry out kidnappings in twenty of Mexico's states, yet that, "as far as I know," they are the only of the drug gangs to do so.

This is of course only the testimony of one man, yet it is likely wise to listen to the opinions of someone who really works on the ground, helping migrants at shelters and along the dangerous travel routes of Oaxaca, Vera Cruz, and the southern region of Mexico.
