Mass graves in Durango may set Mexican record

The ground keeps offering fresh bodies. It seems likely that Durango's mass graves soon will eclipse what previously had been the largest set of unidentified corpses uncovered in Mexico: last month, in northeast Tamaulipas state, where 183 bodies piled up. Never have such massive killing fields been found in such a short time in Mexico or anywhere in the Western Hemisphere.
