YouTube video leads police to Mexican mass grave

In another grisly turn in Mexico's drug war, police have recovered 18 bodies from a mass grave that was announced in a YouTube video.

The video said the victims were from a tourist group kidnapped in Acapulco a month ago.

Authorities resumed their search yesterday for more remains at the burial site in Tres Palos, a town just south of Acapulco.

Police did not yet know if the bodies were some of the 20 men abducted at gunpoint on September 30 while visiting from a neighbouring state.
