(AbsoluteNews.com) – Violent incidents are on the rise in Mexico, and gang disputes are likely to blame. On November 18, local officials in Zacatecas, Mexico, found nine bodies hanging from a bridge. The state government of the Cuauhtémoc municipality confirmed a tenth dead body not far away on the road, all of which are suspected victims of a narco-war between two feuding cartels.
Family members are calling for more security in the town. Some residents say the violence is so bad they’re afraid to leave the house at night because of all the loud noise and yelling.

The grisly discovery wasn’t the first hanging in the region. Just 37 miles away in the city of Fresnillo, police recently found three more bodies swinging from a bridge.
To help secure tourist areas like Cancún, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador called on the National Guard to patrol the district and address gang violence.
With the crisis at the border and overwhelmed border patrol agents shouldering the responsibility of catching everyone trying to cross illegally into the United States, one has to wonder how many of these cartel members are slipping into America.
Police in Mexico are investigating the hangings, but so far, there have been no arrests.
