U.S warns its tourists after 8 found bodies found in Cancun
Zitat The U.S. has issued a travel advisory for Mexico after authorities found eight bodies in Cancún this week.
The travellers to Mexico are advised to “exercise increased caution,” according to the State Department Advisory, which notes that “violent crime, such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery, is widespread.”
Eight bodies were found in the Cancún area on Tuesday. Two of the victims were found in an abandoned taxi, while two others were found dismembered in plastic bags at another location.
A fifth man was discovered bound and fatally shot on Tuesday, while another was found dead in a hammock. The seventh victim was shot to death and discovered in a plastic bag. The officials did not immediately reveal details about the eighth body.
The spree of apparent murders comes amid an uptick in homicides in the state Quintana Roo, where Cancún is located.
