MEXICO CITY - Seven decapitated bodies that had been chopped into pieces and burnt were left on a highway in western Mexico on Saturday in an apparent drug gang killing, the government said.

The bodies were found in plastic bags in the cargo bed of a burnt-out pick-up truck in the state of Michoacan near the town of Venustiano Carranza and the border of Jalisco state, the Michoacan attorney-general's office said in a statement.

Seventeen bodies were found last Sunday in the same region across the border in Jalisco. The area is disputed by drug gangs, including the cult-like Knights Templar gang that dominates trafficking in Michoacan.
