Mexico City — Mexican authorities said Thursday that 21 bodies, some burned, have been found in the northern Mexico border state of Tamaulipas in what appears to have been a clash between drug gangs. The bodies were found near the remains of seven burned-out vehicles near the border town of Miguel Aleman.

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said the killings Wednesday appear to have been part of a dispute between gangs. He said details would be released once all the information was gathered.

The article goes on to state the following:

A Tamaulipas state official who was not authorized to be quoted by name said investigators had counted 21 bodies at the scene.

The area around Miguel Aleman had long been dominated by the Zetas drug cartel, which was locked in a battle for control of crime in the Rio Grande Valley with the rival Gulf cartel.

ADDED NOTE FROM DML NEWS: On Wednesday, Democrat Beto O’Rourke posted a video on his Twitter account of a Mexican border town at night, and declared that the border is one of the safest place in the United States of America, with apprehensions being at “record low” levels.
