MEXICO CITY - Authorities on Thursday discovered eight corpses, six of them showing signs of torture, on the outskirts of Mexico City, where drug-related violence has mounted in recent weeks.

Police in Ecatepec, a poor suburb north of the capital with close to 2 million people, found the bodies of five men and one woman dumped on the street, a police spokeswoman said.

"They were all naked and showed signs of torture," she said. "It also appeared their throats had been cut."

Separately, police found the bodies of two men aged between 18 and 22 on a nearby street. Both died from gunshot wounds.

Authorities have not yet identified the bodies and had no suspects in either crime, the spokeswoman said.
