MEXICO CITY - At least 11 more bodies were dumped around the Mexican city of Veracruz on Thursday, according to local media reports, two days after the discovery of 35 other corpses in the once-quiet Gulf port.
The bodies found on Thursday were in small groups scattered in various parts of the city, despite high security for a summit of attorneys general and justice officials.
On Tuesday, 35 people with suspected links to drug gangs were murdered and their bodies left in two trucks abandoned under a highway bridge in Boca del Rio, about 3 miles (5 km) from the center of Veracruz.
Daily Milenio, quoting federal sources, said up to 14 bodies were found on Thursday, although other media put the toll at 11. Local police and security authorities were not immediately available for comment.
