Decapitated bodies of four men hung from a bridge in CUERNAVACA, Mexico

CUERNAVACA, Mexico (AP) — The decapitated bodies of four men were hung from a bridge Sunday in this central Mexican city besieged by fighting between two drug lords.

A gang led by kingpin Hector Beltran Leyva took responsibility for the killings in a message left with the bodies, the attorney general’s office of Mexico state said in a statement.

The beheaded and mutilated bodies were hung by their feet early Sunday from the bridge in Cuernavaca, a popular weekend getaway for Mexico City residents.

According to the Morelos State Attorney General’s office, the victims’ genitals, index fingers and heads had been cut off and left alongside the highway with a handmade sign which read: “This is what will happen to all those who support the traitor Edgar Valdez Villareal”
