WORLD BRIEFING / MEXICO
Eleven people were found shot to death around Mexico, some bearing signs of torture and left with threats emblematic of drug violence.
Four of the victims were found in a car in the western city of Apatzingan, along with a message threatening the Zetas, hit men for the Gulf cartel. The message was signed La Familia, a drug gang battling for territory in Michoacan state.
Four bodies were found in the southern Pacific coast state of Guerrero, including two men in the trunk of a car in the resort of Zihuatanejo. The two were blindfolded with their hands tied behind their backs, a police report said.
