InSight Map: Mass Graves in Mexico

INFOGRAPHICS / 30 NOV 2010 BY STEVEN DUDLEY EN

InSight Crime maps where Mexican authorities have found mass graves in Mexico since the beginning of 2010. 

The graves do not seem to obey any pattern other than to highlight regions where the fighting between organized criminal gangs has hit its worst. 

The graves also correspond to key corridors for drug and human trafficking moving north, and weapons and cash moving south.
