This was the scene where 35 people were found dead in Veracruz as part of the larger drug war.
It's been a busy--and bloody--week in the Mexican drug wars. In the Gulf state of Veracruz, 35 bound and tortured bodies were dumped on a busy street in broad daylight.
Twelve of the victims were women and two were minors. All were allegedly connected to a rival drug cartel.
But authorities also reported some progress, including the Mexican military's capture of a key figure in the Knights Templar cartel. In addition, the Colombian police seized $250 million worth of assets belonging to the Sinaloa drug cartel.
