MEXICO CITY (AP) - A Tamaulipas state official says
investigators have found 13 more bodies and two new mass graves in the violent border state where 59 bodies were recovered earlier this week.
Interior Secretary Morelos Canseco says nine more bodies were found in eight previously known mass graves and four bodies were in two that were newly discovered.
Canseco said Friday that investigators are search the area around the city of San Fernando based on intelligence tips.
State authorities in Tamaulipas said they started receiving reports in late March that gunmen were pulling men off buses on the stretch of road that leads past San Fernando. It is the same area
where 72 migrants were massacred last August.
