Eight Killed, Three Bodies Found In Mexico

At least eight people have been killed, and a further three bodies found, in the Mexican resort town of Acapulco.

Police in the Mexican resort town of Acapulco say eight people were killed there on Sunday and the bodies of another three found in a shallow grave.

The town, which used to be one of Mexico’s most popular tourist spots, has seen a rise in violence in recent years as criminal gangs fight for control over illegal activities.

According to a recent report, the city is now the most violent in Mexico. The government wants to bring the city back to its former popularity.

Officials from the Guerrero state prosecutor’s office said three men were killed and another injured in a shoot-out in a bar in the early hours of Sunday.

Also on Sunday, two men and a woman were found murdered in a car. Their bodies showed signs of torture.
