Mexico grave yields 51 bodies
By TRACY WILKINSON - Los Angeles Times

MEXICO CITY — Forensic workers have recovered 51 bodies, some burned and mutilated, from a mass grave believed linked to Mexico's raging drug war, authorities said Saturday.

The site near a trash dump in the northern border state of Nuevo Leon is the second-largest clandestine grave found in recent weeks.

Nuevo Leon Gov. Rodrigo Medina said most of the dead were probably drug traffickers killed in fighting with rivals. But he acknowledged that the bodies had yet to be identified.

"They could have been people linked to organized crime, (killed in) a clash, in the war that the cartels are fighting among themselves," he told reporters.

"It undoubtedly shows the level of violence with which they confront each other."
