ACAPULCO, Mexico -- The dismembered bodies of two men were hung from a bridge Tuesday on a highway leading to Acapulco, the second such discovery in three days in a region where two drug lords are fighting for control of their divided cartel.
The men were hung from their feet at the entrance of Chilpancingo, the city nearest to Acapulco along the highway connecting the Pacific coast resort to Mexico's capital, according to police in the state of Guerrero, where Acapulco is located.
Their arms had been cut off, and a message was left threatening extortionists, kidnappers, police and the Mexican army, according to the police report, which had no information on the identity of the two men.
Mexican authorities say the region southeast of Mexico City has been besieged by fighting between two factions of the Beltran Leyva gang, whose leader, Arturo Beltran Leyva, was killed in a December shootout with marines in the city of Cuernavaca.
On Sunday, four decapitated bodies were found hanging by their feet from a bridge in Cuernavaca, a popular weekend getaway just south of Mexico City. The faction led by Hector Beltran Leyva, brother of Arturo, claimed responsibility in a message left with the four bodies. It threatened allies of its rival - U.S.-born kingpin Edgar Valdez Villarreal.
No gang took responsibility in the message left Tuesday with the two bodies in Chilpancingo. The corpses were taken down before dawn.

According to Michelle Obama, it’s never been a safer time to travel to Mexico.
Yes, Pete Stark and Janet Napolitano say so, too.
Locally home invasions are on the rise ... caused me to buy a 9mm automatic and a tactical shotgun.
You know, the way this is written it seems like it is actually threatening the corrupt police/military, the extortionists.... I’m probably not reading it right, but that wording sounds more like vigilante justice?
I think Fox News should have a count-down clock that is digital.
It would have the annual murder count for a variety of cities...:
That would be interesting!!!
Also, maybe by country...
More sleazy mexican scum alert!
“The dismembered bodies of two men were hung from a bridge Tuesday on a highway”
Characteristics of a highly evolved society...
Obama’s friends acting stupidly. VERY stupidly.
Muslims and Mexicans murdering at will.
The four from the other day had genitals removed and were decapitated. Those are some real bad dudes.
I’d like to know just who is charge of their “Come to Mexico” tourist campaign? Bad mojo campaign.
If you want on, or off this S. Texas/Mexico ping list, please FReepMail me.
Probably drug cartel pot calling others black.
Remember the American contractors who were hung from a bridge in Iraq? Related??
