image for Mexico Jalisco: Forensics identify 44 bodies in well

Image copyright AFP Image caption Heavy machinery was used to uncover the bodies earlier in September.

Forensic scientists in Mexico have managed to identify 44 bodies buried in a well in the state of Jalisco.

Discovered just outside the city of Guadalajara, the human remains were hidden in 119 black bags.

A local organisation which searches for missing people has appealed to the government to send more specialists to assist with identification.

They say the local forensic department is overwhelmed and does not have the necessary skills to complete the operation. »
