CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) - Authorities in Mexico's northern border state of Chihuahua say they have found 11 long-dead people in a mass grave and another eight who were apparently tortured and killed in recent days.
The state prosecutor's office for missing people says 11 male bodies were found in Ejido Jesus Carranza, near the U.S. border about 25 miles (40 kilometers) southeast of Ciudad Juarez. Officials say they apparently were buried two years ago, a time when the area was wracked with battles between drug gangs.
Officials said Sunday they also have found eight bodies tossed along a road near Rosales, about 120 miles (200 kilometers) southwest of Ojinaga, Texas. It said they had been shot in the head after being tortured. Some had been burned, beaten and had eyes carved out.
