5 more bodies uncovered in Philippine massacre

MANILA, Philippines – A Philippine police official says five more bodies have been recovered from a third mass grave for victims of the country's worst election violence. The discovery raises the death toll from the carnage to 57.

Chief Superintendent Josefino Cataluna said the five remains found Wednesday were in addition to six bodies found earlier in the day in a large pit buried with three vehicles — the second mass grave discovered since Monday's attack on an election caravan.

No suspects have been formally named. President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has been under local and international pressure to swiftly punish the attackers.

Police say they are investigating a member of a powerful clan along with four police officers.
