MEXICO CITY (AFP) - A total of 64 bodies have been found in mass graves in the western Mexican state of Jalisco, authorities said Monday as they wrapped up a probe of alleged victims of a drug cartel.

A total of 35 graves were found, an official at the attorney general's office said.

The search in an area bordering the drug-plagued state of Michoacan stemmed from a probe into the November 3 disappearance of two federal police officers.

They were not among the bodies found.
