Police in Mexico say four mutilated bodies have been found near a middle school in Chilpancingo, state capital of drug-plagued Guerrero state.
A state police department report says the bodies were discovered
an hour before classes began Thursday. The report says a sign next
to the victims read "the boss of bosses" - a tag that authorities
attribute to the Beltran-Leyva cartel.
In neighboring Michoacan state, the Aptzingan city prosecutor's
office says two federal officers died from gunshot wounds suffered
in a series of attacks across the state Wednesday. The attacks
killed a total of three federal officers and one civilian.
Drug violence has killed more than 14,000 people in Mexico over
the past three years.
