Mexico probes online ‘hitmen ads’
Mexican police are investigating a number of classified ads on the internet which purport to be from hitmen offering the services.
The ads can be found alongside ones for private tuition or domestic help.
In one of them, a person describing himself as an ex-military killer offers "discreet, professional services" for $6,000 (£3,000).
Hired killers are a problem across a country which has seen at least 1,400 killings this year.
Most of the killings are related to drug cartels battling for control of the illegal drugs trade to the US. Reports say the cartels have camps to train killers.
