Mexican security forces have found nearly 60 bodies in eight mass graves in the country’s northern state of Tamaulipas near the US border.
Authorities found the graves on Wednesday in the town of San Fernando while investigating the kidnapping of passengers from a bus on March 25, AFP reported.
The death toll is expected to rise since the officials have counted only three of the eight graves so far.
According to Tamaulipas prosecutor’s office, 11 suspects were detained and five hostages were rescued on the same mission.
