MEXICO CITY - More than 40 bodies have been found in a mass grave in the northern Mexico state of Tamaulipas, near the site where suspected drug gang members massacred 72 migrants last summer, authorities said Wednesday.

Ruben Dario, a spokesman for the Tamaulipas state Attorney General's Office, said the site was being excavated to determine the exact number of dead and their identities.

State officials said the graves were found by a military patrol, but the press offices of both the Defense Department and Mexico's navy said they could not immediately confirm the discovery. The site is about 80 miles (130 kilometers) from the border at Brownsville, Texas.

The mass burial was discovered late Tuesday in the township of San Fernando, in the same area where the bodies of 72 migrants, most from Central America, were found shot to death Aug. 24 at a ranch.
