JUAREZ, Mexico - Fourteen bodies have been discovered in the past week in the Mexican border town of Juarez.

The bodies found in two mass graves were said by authorities to have been buried for at least five years, Las Cruces Sun News reported Wednesday.

Juarez and other Mexican border towns have reported increasing drug violence in recent months.

Last month, Mexican President Felipe Calderon sent federal police to Juarez to help combat the drug violence there.
