17 mutilated bodies found in central Mexico
Associated Press 1 hr 32 mins ago
Quote:
JALISCO, Mexico (AP) The dismembered bodies of 17 men were found Sunday on a farm in central Mexico, in an area disputed by violent drug cartels, officials said. Jalisco state prosecutor Tomas Coronado Olmos said the bodies were dumped by a highway in the town of Tizapan el Alto near the border between Jalisco and Michoacan states. Authorities discovered the bodies while Mexicans celebrated Independence Day.

Coronado Olmos didn't reveal the identities of the slain but said the bodies were naked, mutilated and stacked with chains around their necks. Mexico's drug cartels have regularly left behind such grisly remains as they battle for control of key trafficking routes and markets.

On Friday, 16 bodies were found across Tamaulipas, a violence-plagued state on the Texas border, two days after the arrest there of one of the region's top drug bosses, Gulf Cartel head Eduardo Costilla Sanchez. More than 47,000 people have been killed in Mexican drug violence since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderon launched a military offensive against the cartels.

At this rate, in a couple of years, the death total will be similar to the US deaths in Vietnam. Already it's about 10,000 more than the US lost in Korea.
