MEXICO: An SUV filled with 10 bodies was left outside the office of a Mexican state governor in a public square lit up with holiday decorations, officials said on Thursday.
The bodies were crammed into a Mazda SUV left before dawn near a Christmas tree in the main plaza of the state capital of Zacatecas.
The state governor, David Monreal, said in a video filmed at the plaza that the vehicle contained bodies of people with apparent signs of beating and bruising.
“They came to leave them here in front of the palace,” he said, referring to his offices in a centuries-old building at the Plaza de Armas of the city, also called Zacatecas.
The federal public safety department said a man drove the truck into the plaza, then exited the vehicle and walked away down an alley.
