Mexican marines found the bodies of 72 people at a rural location in northern Mexico after a shootout with suspected drug cartel gunmen that left one marine and three suspects dead. The find appears to be the largest drug-cartel body-dumping ground found in Mexico since President Felipe Calderon launched an offensive against drug trafficking in 2006. The cartels often use vacant lots or mine shafts to dump the bodies of executed rivals or kidnapping victims. The Navy announced the discovery Wednesday but did not give details on the victims' identities, who had killed them or whether the bodies had been buried.

Two skiers injured in an avalanche in the Oregon backcountry were in "satisfactory" condition with broken bones after about 50 rescuers labored for 16 hours to save them, authorities said Thursday. Rescuers had to leave the bodies of two other skiers on the northeast Oregon mountain until the weather improves. Two to three more inches of snow were forecast for Thursday night. Those killed were Jake Merrill, a 23-year-old ski guide for Wallowa Alpine Huts, and Shane Coulter, a 30-year-old aerospace engineer from Seattle who had been on the multi-day trip with five others, the Baker County Sheriff's Department said.

The first inkling that something was wrong came when managers peered through a window at the upscale Huntington Beach apartment complex and called police. The responding officers made a grim discovery when they entered the vacant unit late last week: The bodies of two teenagers sprawled on the floor. Investigators were waiting Monday for toxicology reports to be completed, but the two youths appeared to have died from drug- and alcohol-related causes, said Lt. Russell Reinhart of the Huntington Beach Police Department.

MEXICO CITY - The number of exhumed bodies now stands at 42 -- and the digging continues at the latest clandestine mass grave to be discovered on Mexican soil. This month, Mexican authorities declared that they had exhumed 19 unidentified bodies from the unmarked burial ground along the Lerma River, in the western state of Jalisco. The site is near the border with Michoacan, a state reeling from the presence of violent drug cartels. Since the initial announcement of the discovery, the number of exhumed bodies has continued to grow as officials continue their grisly work.
