A wave of violence has left dozens of people dead in and around Mexico City.
GUADALAJARA, Mexico — A wave of violence in Mexico has left dozens of people dead in the past three days.
Police believe the Toluca killings are linked to organized crime – some of the bodies had been dismembered with notes left nearby, Agence France-Presse reported.
The deaths in Mexico City, however, are believed to be isolated incidents with nothing to do with organized crime, the AFP said, citing the city’s top prosecutor, Rodolfo Rios, who described the weekend as “atypical.”
Mexico City normally averages less than two murders per day.
The Los Angeles Times reportedthat most of the deaths in Mexico City were gun-related.
