Mexican authorities have found a mass grave containing the remains of five youths who were among a group of 12 people abducted from a Mexico City club in May, a crime that sparked fears of increasing drug gang violence in the capital. Officials said they had found a total of 13 corpses in a grave covered in cement just outside Mexico City. They were still trying to identify the other eight bodies, which were discovered next to a shotgun, handcuffs and a flak jacket. REUTERS/Edgard Garrido (MEXICO - Tags: CRIME LAW CIVIL UNREST)

The parents of Francis Alejandro Garcia Orozco, who was abducted along with five other men, hold a banner with photographs of them at their shop in Iguala, in the Mexican state of Guerrero February 20, 2013. For nearly three years, Maria Orozco has sought to discover the fate of her son. She says he was abducted along with five colleagues by soldiers from the nightclub where they worked in Iguala, a parched town south of the Mexican capital. Dozens of people were abducted and murdered by Mexican security forces over the past six years during a gruesome war with drug cartels, Human Rights Watch said on Wednesday, urging President Enrique Pena Nieto to overhaul the military justice system. The banner roughly reads, "President Felipe Calderon, your army took our sons away from us but we want them alive." REUTERS/Tomas Bravo (MEXICO - Tags: MILITARY SOCIETY)

A woman evacuated from Sinlaj village stands between bunk beds in a bedroom at the Mariscal Gregorio Solares military base in Huehuetenango, about 150 miles (240 km) northwest of Guatemala City September 29, 2012. The military evacuated 44 villagers on September 26 from Sinlaj village, located near the border with Mexico, after they were threatened by the Zetas drug cartel for not assisting in drug trafficking, according to Ronald Vasquez, the base's third commander who was in charge of the operation. The base is currently sheltering 29 villagers as it does not have the capacity to hold more people, with the other 15 being sheltered elsewhere, according to Vasquez.
