9 Headless Bodies Found In Mexican Border City

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) – The bodies of nine decapitated men have been found in a vacant empty lot in Tijuana, part of a wave of violence that has claimed at least 23 lives in less than 24 hours in this border city.

A Baja California state police statement says the bodies were found Sunday in a poor Tijuana neighborhood, across from San Diego. The heads were discovered in plastic bags near the bodies. Three police identification cards were also found in the bags.

Another five people were shot to death in four attacks throughout Tijuana on Sunday. Police say nine people, including a 4-year-old, were killed in three separate attacks late Saturday.

Drug turf battles have fueled a wave of violence that has swept through Tijuana and other Mexican cities.
