MEXICO CITY: Mexican police on Tuesday found 14 dismembered bodies in plastic bags left in a van in the northern border city of Nuevo Laredo, in a crime apparently linked to the war on drug gangs.
Police received a report of an abandoned truck in the city at 07:30 a.m local time (1230 GMT), where they found 10 black plastic bags containing the remains of 14 male bodies aged between 30 to 35 years old, Xinhua news agency reported.
According to reports, the truck was abandoned in front of the City Hall with a threatening message allegedly left by the criminals. Municipal officials and the Mexican armed forces later arrived at the scene and had launched into investigations. No group has claimed responsibility for the massive slaughter, but drug cartels are the most likely to blame.
Tamaulipas is one of the states most affected by violence triggered by organised crime groups in recent years, with drug cartels engaging in a violent struggle for control of drug transfer routes to the United States.
More than 47,000 people in Mexico have been killed in drug-related violence since President Felipe Calderon launched the "war against organised crimes" in 2006. -- BERNAMA
