MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Officials in southern Mexico say they have discovered 16 bodies left in a truck in a region plagued by drug violence.
The Guerrero state Attorney General's Office says the bodies were found in Coyuca de Catalan. That city is close to the border with Michoacan state and is about 170 miles (280 kilometers) southwest of Mexico City.
The region is a battleground between drug gangs including La Familia Michoacana and the breakaway Knights Templar.
Officials have not yet identified the victims or described a motive for the slayings.
