16 bodies in 24 hours – a dozen of them next to schoolyard
The authorities in the Mexican border city of Tijuana have found 16 bodies in 24 hours, in what police believe is part of a wave of drug-related murders.
Twelve of the bodies were found on a patch of wasteland near a school just before it opened. Most showed signs of having been bound and tortured.
A wave of murders linked to the drug trade has claimed the lives of more than 3,000 people in Mexico this year.
City officials suspended lessons at the school near where the bodies were found.

Is this where the United States is headed?
