    The bodies of 117 people, including a fetus and two children, have been exhumed from a mass grave in Mexico’s town of Tetelcingo, in the state of Morelos, prosecutor Javier Perez Duron said.

    MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – There remains include those of "a fetus, a baby and a child," Duron said as quoted by El Universal on Friday. The baby was two years old, while the child was seven.

    According to Mexico’s prosecutors, the bodies could have been dumped at the site illegally. Duron said that an investigation is underway to find out who was responsible for the mass burial.

    According to Duron, heavy machinery will be used to inspect a wider area around the mass grave in order to rule out that more human remains or bodies could be buried at the site.
