49 killed in Mexican massacre

Porfirio Ramirez in Monterrey, Mexico

Forty-nine decapitated and mutilated bodies were found yesterday dumped on a highway connecting the northern Mexican metropolis of Monterrey to the US border in what could be the latest outburst in an escalating war of terror among drug gangs.

Mexico's organised crime groups often abandon multiple bodies in public places as warnings to their rivals.

However, Nuevo Leon state attorney general, Adrian de la Garza, said he did not rule out the possibility that the victims, 43 men and six women, were US-bound migrants.
