MONTERREY - Gunmen dumped the mutilated bodies of two bodyguards assigned to a Mexican state governor on Wednesday and left a message threatening more violence but the governor said he would not be cowed.

In an escalation of already alarming violence in Monterrey, Mexico's richest city, soldiers and police found the bodies wrapped in sheets and discarded near a supermarket, Mexican media and the government of Nuevo Leon state said.

"To Governor Rodrigo Medina, here are two of your bodyguards," read a message left near the bodies, according to local newspaper El Norte. The message also said the bodyguards, members of Nuevo Leon's state police, took money from the feared Zetas drug cartel.

"Let's see where the hell you can hide," it added.
