26 bodies found dumped in Guadalajuara


The dumping of large numbers of bodies has become a familiar feature of Mexico's 5-year-old drug war, which has claimed at least 43,000 victims. On Wednesday, authorities in Sinaloa's capital, Culiacan, found the charred bodies of 17 people in a pair of vehicles parked in the downtown district. Seven other victims were found elsewhere in the state.

In September, gunmen dumped 35 bodies, many of them reportedly marked with a "Z" for Zetas, on a busy boulevard in the port city of Veracruz. Masked men appeared on an Internet video claiming credit for the killings, saying they were seeking to cleanse Veracruz state of the Zetas. They called themselves the "Zeta killers" and claimed to be part of the Jalisco Cartel-New Generation, the Jalisco group believed to be allied with Guzman.
