Mexique: au moins 23 corps retrouvés dans une fosse

At least 23 bodies were discovered, last Monday, in a pit underground, located not far from a base of the municipal police near Guadalajara, the second largest city in Mexico, announced on Friday the public prosecutor local.

On these 23corps, 3 have already been identified and the families of the victims have been prevented, said the prosecutor’s office in the State of Jalisco in a press release.

The pit has been an update in a property situated between two homes and is only three blocks from a police base in El Salto, a municipality located on the outskirts of Guadalajara.

With 487 corpses exhumed, Jalisco is the State with the largest number of bodies found in tombs underground since the assumption of office of the current government in December 2018, according to a report of the national Commission of search for missing persons published this week.

Located in the west of the country, this State is experiencing increasing violence, for more than five years, due to the presence of the powerful drug cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG).
