Murdered 72 in Mexico 'were migrants'

Mexican officials investigating the death of 72 people found murdered at a ranch in the north of the country say they were migrants trying to reach the United States.

They say the 58 men and 14 women had come from South and Central America.

Their bodies were found after a shoot-out between suspected drug traffickers and security forces.
