At least 20 bodies dumped in Guadalajara, Mexican reports say
Source: LA Times

Killers dumped the bodies of more than 20 men near a well-known monument in the western city of Guadalajara, reports said Thursday. The city last month hosted the Pan-American Games amid tight security because of recent drug-related fighting.

Mexican media said 23 victims were found in three vehicles at a traffic circle that is the site of the 150-foot Arches of the Third Millennium, a series of yellow arcs arrayed in a curving pattern above the intersection of two major avenues.

Authorities in the state of Jalisco, where Guadalajara is located, confirmed the discovery of 23 black bags appearing to contain human remains, but did not immediately confirm the number of bodies.

Jalisco state prosecutor Tomas Coronado said a folded banner bearing a message was found at the scene but he did not disclose its contents. Some media accounts described it as a so-called narco-banner a handwritten message directed by hit men against rivals, which is often left next to victims.

I wonder how Tom Lehrer would change his song to satirize the current Mexico.
