More than 60,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence in Mexico in the past six years.

The bodies of seven men were found in the sitting position in plastic chairs alongside a street in western Mexico.

Authorities said the victims had been shot in the head and placed near a traffic circle in Uruapan, a city in Michoacan state.

A sign nailed to one of the bodies with an ice pick said: "Warning! This will happen to thieves, kidnappers, sex offenders and extortionists." 

The gruesome discovery on Saturday came after seven people, including three off-duty federal police, were shot dead in a bar in neighboring Guerrero state on Friday night.
