AT least 59 bodies have been found dead in unmarked graves in Guanajuato state, Mexico.
The horrific discovery of the remains in the Salvatierra municipality was said to be that of teenagers and found where drug cartels regularly fight for control of trafficking routes, considered to be one of the most violent places in Mexico.
According to Karla Quintana, the head of Mexico’s National Search Commission, at least 10 of the victims were women and were discovered after an alert was raised by families of the missing people.
Alarmingly, there have been more than 2,200 murders recorded in Guanajuato state in the first eight months of the year.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the deceased.
