Berta Oliva, president of the Committee of Relatives of the Detained and Disappeared of Honduras, has reported that a mass grave was discovered containing the bodies of more than 100 people who had been disappeared in the last three months.

Oliva accused the government repression of working in conjunction with organized crime.
