Soldiers and police have found an outlaw camp in southern Mexico where a kidnap victim was rescued, body parts were found in a cooler and seven bodies were extracted from clandestine burial pits.

The grisly find was made in the township of Zitlala, a part of southern Guerrero state where rival drug gangs have been engaged in a wave of extortion, kidnappings and turf battles.

The Guerrero state security spokesman said Tuesday that a joint-army police patrol received a tip that people were being held at a rural encampment near a mountain.

Roberto Alvarez said the patrol found the camp and freed a kidnapped man, but found no suspects. They did find gun magazines, vehicles and the cooler with human remains.
