Forensic scientists in Mexico have managed to identify 44 bodies buried in a well in the state of Jalisco.

The human remains were hidden in 119 black bags.

The remains were discovered when local residents started complaining about the smell.

Jalisco is the heartland of one of Mexico's most violent drug gangs and this is the second major find of bodies in the state this year.

The vast majority of the bodies were cut up, so authorities had to piece together different parts in order to identify them.

Many body parts still remain unidentified.

A local organisation which searches for missing people has appealed to the government to send more specialists to assist with identification.
