-

ACAPULCO, Mexico — Authoritie­s in the southern Mexico state of Guerrero said Monday they found the tortured, asphyxiate­d bodies of eight men stuffed into an SUV abandoned on the side of a highway.

Guerrero state security spokesman Roberto Alvarez said the victims were found around midnight near Chilpancin­go, the state capital.

The state has been the scene of drug gang turf battles, kidnapping­s and extortions, and groups of bodies are often found dumped on roadsides.

Alvarez said the dead men appeared to be between 25 and 35 years old, and had “visible signs of torture.”
