Nine bod­ies found hang­ing from bridge in Mexico

Fiji Sun - - World News - BBC

Uru­a­pan: Mex­i­can Po­lice have found the bod­ies of nine peo­ple hang­ing from a bridge and seven more corpses hacked up and dumped on the road.

The mas­sacre in the city of Uru­a­pan in the western Mi­choacán state is thought to be gang-re­lated, pros­e­cu­tors say.

A ban­ner hang­ing from the bridge re­port­edly bore the ini­tials of one of Mexico’s most pow­er­ful drug car­tels. Crim­i­nals have pre­vi­ously hung the bod­ies of their mur­dered vic­tims in pub­lic to in­tim­i­date rival gangs.
