Mass murder along border of Jalisco and Michoacan in Mexico

The mutilated bodies of 17 men were found on a roadside near a farm in the town of Tizapan el Alto along the border between Jalisco and Michoacan.

This border area has been a drug cartel battleground for some time. Travellers should avoid overland travel in this area due to lack of personal security and the risk of being caught in a crossfire between rival gangs.
