Mexican police have found the bodies of nine people hanging from a bridge and seven more corpses hacked up and dumped on the road.

The massacre in the city of Uruapan is thought to be gang‑related.

Bbc reports a banner hanging from the bridge reportedly bore the initials of one of Mexico's most powerful drug cartels.

Criminals have previously hung the bodies of their murdered victims in public to intimidate rival gangs.
