Mexico

    The bodies of a retired brigadier general and two other men have been found near the Mexican resort of Cancun after a suspected drug cartel killing. The three, who were found dead in the back of a truck, were part of a protection team for Cancun's mayor. Authorities say they think the men were intercepted on a road near Cancun, then taken to a remote forest, tortured, and killed with a shot to the head. Drug-related violence claimed more than 5,000 lives in Mexico last year. (BBC)
