MEXICO CITY, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Two severed heads were discovered along a busy highway in Mexico City Monday, authorities said.

A message from a criminal gang known as Hand With Eyes claiming Mexico City its territory also was found, the newspaper said.
The Times reported it remained unclear whether the severed heads were meant to send a message to the military, which has been fighting drug cartels, or to rival criminal groups.
Cartel-related violence is rare in the Mexican capital city but a decapitated body was found last month in another part of the city.
