Ancient cemetery found in Mexican cave

The remains of 167 people, dating back 1,300 years, have been found in a cave in the south of Mexico.

Emilio Gallaga of the national anthropology institute says the first test results show the remains come from a still-unspecified pre-Hispanic community dating to the eighth century. He says clay artwork that could have come from a pre-Hispanic group was also found in the cave.
