A stunning leak of more than 4 million documents from inside the Mexican military has revealed collusion between high-level military officials and the country's cartels. The leak, published by the hacking group Guacamaya, is one of the largest in Mexico's history and shows how military officials sold weapons, technical equipment and key information about rival gangs to cartels. The documents also show how officials monitored journalists and activists using Pegasus spyware, and evaded cooperation with the investigation into the disappearance of 43 students from Ayotzinapa. For more, we're joined by journalist Luis Chaparro, who examined some of the documents and reported in a piece for Vice that they reveal Mexico's military sold grenades to the drug cartels.
