Three police officers have been suspended after posing for pictures with topless tourists on a beach in Cancún.
Images of the trio grinning from ear to ear as they cozied up to the scantily-clad sunbathers, said to be foreigners, went viral in Mexico over the weekend.
All three men are members of local State Police and were wearing body armour and carrying machine guns at the time.
Violence linked to drug cartels has increased in the Quintana Roo region in the past year and is creeping into major tourist hotspots such as Cancún.
The X-rated snaps were posted on a local Facebook group by a user who said “…when you’re more interested in the sl**s than looking after Cancún beaches.”
