Dismembered bodies found in Mexico

Mexico City, Jan 24 (IANS/EFE) Plastic bags containing dismembered bodies were found Wednesday in the central Mexican city of Toluca, sources told EFE.

While authorities are still examining the remains, everything indicates the parts belong to five separate bodies.

Several suspected members of the La Familia Michoacana drug cartel have been arrested in connection with the gruesome discovery, the sources said.

Investigators suggest the suspects may also have been responsible for the deaths of the more than 30 people whose bodies were found over the course of Jan 12-14 at various spots in the Valley of Mexico, which encompasses Mexico state and the Federal District.
