Twelve Police Officers have been arrested in Northern Mexico for their alleged connection to the killing of a group of Migrants last month.
The bodies of nineteen people were found in a burnt out Vehicle near the US border in Tamaulipas State on January 22.
Most of the victims are believed to have been Central African Migrants.
Investigators think they were killed as part of a turf war between criminal gangs over control of migrant smuggling routes in the area.
Tamaulipas State Attorney-General, Irving Barriers Mojica said the officers would be charged with murder and abuse of power.
