Head thrown in at polling station in northern Mexico

In Mexico, where elections are taking place, a severed head was thrown in at a polling station in the city of Tijuana. Plastic bags were also found near the polling room, which included severed hands. This is reported by the local authorities in the city, which borders the United States.

The man who threw the head in ran away after his action, but its not clear whether he was arrested as well. Whether the violence is linked to the polling process is not clear.

The elections in Mexico, which include all 500 seats in the lower house, several governors and thousands of local power positions, were one of the bloodiest ever. Research carried out by the Mexican research company Ettelekt shows that at least 91 politicians were murdered prior to the election.

Nothing has yet been known about the outcome of the elections. More than 93 million Mexicans can cast their votes.
