9 Headless Men Found In Tijuana

The bodies of nine decapitated men have been found in a vacant empty lot in Tijuana, part of a wave of violence that has claimed at least 23 lives in less than 24 hours in the border city.

The bodies were found Sunday in a poor Tijuana neighborhood, according to Baja California state police. The heads were discovered in plastic bags near the bodies. Three police identification cards were also found in the bags.

Another five people were shot to death in four attacks throughout Tijuana Sunday.

Police said nine people, including a 4-year-old, were killed in three separate attacks late Saturday.

Drug turf battles have fueled a wave of violence that has swept through Tijuana and other Mexican cities.
