Ten decapitated bodies left in truck in Mexico: report

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Ten decapitated bodies were found in the northern Mexican city of Torreon in the country's latest grisly mass murder as drug gangs war over smuggling routes, Mexican newspapers reported on Sunday.

The bodies were dumped in the back of a truck with their heads scattered across the city, Reforma newspaper reported.

Authorities said the killers left a message directed at another gang, the paper said.

More than 40,000 people have died in drug violence in Mexico since late 2006.
