19 bodies found in narco ‘turf war’ in Mexico: prosecutor

Nineteen bodies were found Thursday in a turf war between rival drug gangs in the Mexican city of Uruapan, some dismembered and others hanging from bridges, said the state prosecutor.

“There is a turf war between the (local) cells of different criminal groups. They are fighting for territorial control over the production, distribution and consumption of drugs,” said Adrian Lopez, chief prosecutor for the western state of Michoacan, where Uruapan is located.

“That leads to this type of incident, which alarms the population, and rightfully so,” Lopez told a press conference.
