Nineteen charred bodies found near Mexico-US border


Autopsies are underway, but identification of the corpses will be complicated due to their condition, a source from the prosecutor's office said.

At least 19 charred corpses have been discovered in Mexico near the US border in an area where drug cartels often clash, the Tamaulipas state prosecutor's office said.

Police on Saturday found two burnt-out vehicles containing human remains on a country road near the town of Carmago.

Preliminary investigations suggested the victims had been shot, then their bodies set alight.

. . .

In January 2019, in the neighbouring town of Miguel Aleman, 24 corpses were found, of which 15 were charred.

Mexico recorded 34,523 assassinations in 2020, a slight decrease on 2019's figure of 34,608, which was a record high since official tallies started.

Cartel-related violence has beset Mexico since 2006, with more than 300,000 killings since then.

1. Casualties of the war on drugs

I hope the new administration will move to decriminalize drugs. The war on drugs has been a fiasco from day one and they’ve not only spent billions in this country but the cash flow has corrupted many other countries. People need to accept reality and get off this crazy train.
