49 Mutilated Bodies Found Dumped On Mexican Highway

Reports have come in that a group known as the Zeta’s are claiming responsibility for the 49 headless bodies on a highway near Mexico’s northern city of Monterrey.

The mutilated corpses of 43 men and 6 women, whose hands and feet had also been cut off, were found in a pile on a highway in the municipality of Cadereyta Jimenez in the early hours of Sunday, officials from the state of Nuevo Leon said.

Mexican authorities say they are having a hard time identifying the bodies because they are headless.

The massacre was the latest in a string of mass slayings that have convulsed Mexico in recent months, many of them in the north of the country, where the Zetas have waged a war against rival groups for control of smuggling routes (go to MSNBC.com for full story).
