A mass grave discovered on the outskirts of a Mexican city where police engaged in a deadly clash with student protesters a week ago contained 28 bodies, authorities have said.
The grave was discovered on the outskirts of Iguala, a town about 120 miles south of Mexico City.
Guerrero state prosecutor Inaky Blanco said the remains are too damaged for immediate identification and he cannot confirm whether any of the bodies are those of 43 college students who were reported missing after the confrontation with police.
Mr Blanco said one person detained in the case has told investigators that 17 students were taken to the grave site and killed there.
But he stressed that investigators have not confirmed the person’s story.
