Gunmen have killed three people and wounded two others on a popular beach in north‑western Mexico.

The victims, all men, were resting under a palm tree in San José del Cabo, in Baja California state.

Their identities have not been confirmed.

No arrests have been made and witnesses say there was panic among tourists when the incident happened.

Mexico has seen a spike in violence in recent months.

In a separate development, a mass grave with the bodies of 14 people ‑ 11 men and three women ‑ in the northern state of Mexico.

Prosecutors say some of the bodies were dismembered, adding that there could be more victims on the site.

DNA tests will be carried out on the bodies to determine their identities.

Experts say the latest violence may have been fuelled by the arrest of top drug cartel leaders, which has spawned independent criminal groups that have moved beyond drug trafficking into other crimes, including robbery and kidnapping.
