San Fernando Update

Dozens more bodies have been found in mass graves in San Fernando, bringing the total up to 120 murder victims found since last week. The first two bodies, belonging to a Guatemalan and a resident of Matamoros, Tamaulipas, have been identified. Many of the murdered are suspected to be residents of Guanajuato who have gone missing in recent weeks. The governor of Tamaulipas, Egidio Torre Cantú, has gone to Mexico City to talk about the situation with José Francisco Blake.

More than 200 people have been found in mass graves in two different episodes in less than a year. The first time, the victims were migrants; the second, they were pulled off of commuter buses traveling through the region. The same group, the Zetas, was behind both of them.
