9 Bodies Found Near Mexican Drug Hub

Police in Mexico say they have found nine bodies - seven men and two women - buried near the drug-smuggling hub of Ciudad Juarez, just across the U.S. border.

Investigators say they have not ruled out finding more bodies at the site.

Thousands of soldiers and federal police are posted around Juarez in an effort to quell violence involving warring drug gangs.  The cartels are fighting for control of trafficking routes into the United States.

The turf wars have turned Juarez into Mexico's most violent city.  It is located just across the border from the U.S. city of El Paso, Texas.
