Mexico murders

THE HEADS of four men have been delivered to police in Ascension near the US border city Ciudad Juarez in Mexico.

Police officers who received the delivery, marked “sensitive”, have said that the heads were from men aged between 25 and 35 and could have belonged to any of the 10 local people who were kidnapped this month by gunmen.

Statistics reveal that more people have been killed this year than in all of 2007 with Mexico overtaking Colombia and Iraq with its kidnapping record.
