At least 20 bodies found in a new mass grave in Cocula (Iguala)
Federal authorities found this weekend a new clandestine mass grave in which 20 bodies have been found so far.
Sources close to the case said that Federal forces who resumed the search located the graves in the vicinity of Cocula. According to the information collected by Eje Central, authorities have already reported the discovery to some relatives and representatives of the missing "normalistas", and they are waiting on the expert examinations in order to determine the identities and find out if the bodies belong to some of the 43 missing students or not.
The sources explained that this is a new clandestine mass grave located in the area of the garbage dump, where the authorities have been working for weeks.
Since today members of the citizen police have integrated into the Safety Commission with the gendarmería to work together for the first time since September 26, when the students were taken by force.
According to our sources, the citizen police intends to expand their search with the support of the gendarmería, to reach different areas and towns they have not been able to access due to presence of criminal groups.
