Baku-APA. The Guatemalan government says one of the first corpses from mass graves found in Mexico has been identified as a Guatemalan man, APA reports quoting news.yahoo.com website.
The Guatemalan Foreign Ministry says the victim has been identified as Feliciano Tagual Ovalle, 44.
Mexican authorities had previously said most of the 88 bodies found in 14 pits were probably Mexican citizens.
The graves were found earlier this month in the township of San Fernando, near the U.S. border.
Investigators found the bodies of 72 migrants in the same area in August. Most were Central Americans, who frequently travel through the area to reach the United States.
In a statement Monday, the ministry called on Mexico to fully investigate the killings and punish those responsible.
