A car with several bodies has been parked in front of the government palace of the Mexican state of Zacatecas.
The victims were apparently beaten, Governor David Monreal said in a video on Facebook today. He did not give a number, according to media reports there were six bodies.
The car was parked in the early morning (local time) and the driver fled, said Monreal from the central square of the capital of the central Mexican state, which is also called Zacatecas, which is still decorated for Christmas. The background was unclear. Violent drug gangs are active in Zacatecas.
Mexico has been plagued by a spiral of violence between drug cartels and state security forces for around 15 years. Since then President Felipe Calderon began militarily fighting the “drug war” at the end of 2006, around 350,000 people have fallen victim to it. Another 96,000 are considered to have disappeared.
