 Newscast Media -- Authorities discovered remains of at least 18 people that were scattered in trenches, at a suspected drug-gang damping site near Monterrey in northern Mexico a spokesperson from the state attorney general's office in Nuevo Leon state, where Monterrey is located, said.  


The bodies were badly decomposed to be identified, and photographs showed charred spots on the soil suggesting some bodies may have been partially burned. Drug cartel hit men have been known to use mass dumping sites to dispose of their victims. In late May, police in the central Mexico tourist town of Taxco discovered 55 bodies in an abandoned silver mine.


At a military academy graduation on Friday, Mexico's president Felipe Calderon praised the army's role in the drug fight and called the drug cartels and said, "Our determination is not only not to take a single step backward, but to carry on decisively with this fight, to persevere in the effort until we reach the victory that Mexico deserves."           Add Comments>>
