9 bodies with signs of torture found in southern Mexico


ACAPULCO, Mexico: Authorities in Mexico found nine bodies — five of which were dismembered — on a road in violence-plagued Guerrero, officials said on Monday (Tuesday in Manila), after two sailors were found dead elsewhere in the state over the weekend. “The bodies of nine males with visible signs of torture” were discovered on Sunday night on a road between the towns of Tixtla and Atliaca, in Guerrero’s central region, the state’s secretary of security said in a statement. Agents at the local prosecutors office reported finding “four bodies tied at the feet and hands,” and noted that authorities also recovered five black plastic bags containing the remains of five more people. Those five bodies had been dismembered, with some of the body parts found outside the bags, a Tixtla police commander told Agence France-Presse, requesting anonymity for security reasons. Authorities are taking steps to identify the individuals.
