World Briefing reports this morning:

Seven bodies were dumped before dawn at a school soccer field in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez.

Neighbors in an upscale neighborhood found banners allegedly signed by a drug gang with the bodies, but officials would give no details about the messages.

No suspects had been located. The unidentified victims had been shot, beaten and choked, but the cause of death was still being determined.
