14 killed in 2 drug-plagued Mexican states

Authorities say the bodies of seven men were found in plastic chairs placed along the side of a street in the drug cartel-plagued Mexican state of Michoacan, while another seven people were killed in the neighboring Guerrero.



Morelia (Mexico): Authorities say the bodies of seven men were found in plastic chairs placed along the side of a street in the drug cartel-plagued Mexican state of Michoacan, while another seven people were killed in the neighboring Guerrero.

Michoacan`s Attorney General`s Office said in a statement yesterday that the seven bodies had bullet wounds and had been placed individually in the sitting position in chairs near a traffic circle in the city of Uruapan. The office did not provide a motive for killings.

In Guerrero, authorities said armed men burst into a bar in Ciudad Altamirano and opened fire late Friday. Four civilians and three off-duty federal agents were killed.

Both the states on Mexico`s western coast have seen a surge of violence in recent years attribute to drug cartels.
