Mexico anger at trailer full of corpses

A refrigerated trailer containing at least 100 corpses in Mexico’s western state of Jalisco has angered residents who have complained about the smell.

Authorities said on Monday they were trying to relocate the container, which was rented after mortuaries in the city of Guadalajara became full.

“We have a lot of children in this neighbourhood… it could make us all sick,” resident José Luis Tovar said.

Laws in Mexico prevent the cremation of bodies linked to violent crime.

Local authorities said they were looking for a longer-term solution to store the bodies following a recent wave of violence.

“We ran out of cemetery plots where we could bury them,” the head of the Jalisco forensic investigators unit, Luis Octavio Cotero, said.

He added that a site was being established that was expected to facilitate some 800 corpses, AFP news agency reports.
