12 murdered in latest spate of violence in Mexican coast resort

Mexico City, May 22 (UNI) At least 12 people were murdered in the span of a few hours in the latest spate of violence in Mexico's Pacific coast resort of Acapulco, local media reported Tuesday.
According to the city's Public Security Secretariat, the bodies of four men and two women with multiple gunshot wounds were found late Monday in front of the Genovesa condominium, near the resort's Aguas Blancas roundabout.
Several of the victims were semi-naked and showed signs of torture. The bodies were taken to the Forensic Medical Service for identification.
Members of the National Guard, Guerrero State Police and local police were at the scene to investigate the multiple homicide.
Meanwhile, on the outskirts of Acapulco, four people were killed and one was injured in two armed attacks that occurred almost simultaneously in the Ricardo Flores Magon district Monday afternoon.
Prior to these acts of violence, a man was shot dead by unidentified assailants in the Icacos district, near the resort's popular Golden Zone.
Monday ended with another violent death around midnight in the resort's old quarter, known as Acapulco Tradicional.
The famed resort has for the past 15 years suffered from a wave of violence linked to organized crime, and is recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Otis, a category 5 storm that hit the city in October last year.
