Mexican gunmen blocked an underpass on a busy road in the state of Veracruz and abandoned 35 bodies in the backs of two trucks, authorities said.

Horrified witnesses sent messages on Twitter as gunmen began blocking the road in the centre of Boca del Rio.

Some of the victims had their hands tied and showed signs of having been tortured, reports said.

Veracruz, on the Gulf of Mexico coast, has seen a spike in drug-related violence in recent months.


Editor’s note: US drug use is what fuels the violence of Mexico’s drug cartels.
