Police find 10 bodies in ex-crematorium in Mexico

06 February 2015, 18:30

Acapulco - At least 10 bodies were discovered in an abandoned crematorium in Mexico's Pacific resort of Acapulco after neighbors complained of a foul smell, police said Friday.

Army and federal police were deployed to guard the crematorium, which was abandoned a year ago, while authorities removed the bodies in the Llano Largo neighborhood, a high-ranking Guerrero state police officer told AFP on condition of anonymity.

The bodies were in an advanced state of decay but the officer did not give any more details about the corpses.

Acapulco was once a favorite haunt of Hollywood stars, but the city has lost its flair over the years, while feuding drug gangs have turned it into one of Mexico's most violent places.

The port is in Guerrero state, where authorities say 43 college students were abducted by corrupt police and handed over to the Guerreros Unidos drug gang, whose henchmen killed and incinerated the victims.

The aspiring teachers, all young men, vanished on September 26 in the city of Iguala, 210 kilometers (130 miles) north of Acapulco.

The Iguala case has sparked protests and turned into the biggest challenge of President Enrique Pena Nieto's two-year-old administration.
