    Thirteen bodies have been recovered from a mass grave near Mexico City, five of which are remains of young people kidnapped in the capital in May, officials said.

    "The remains of 13 people were recovered," federal prosecutor Renato Sales told reporters on Friday, adding that forensics tests revealed the identities of five of the victims.

    Officials said DNA tests would continue to identify the eight other "badly decomposed" bodies.
