Robert talks with NPR's John Burnett about the discovery of possible mass grave sites near Ciudad Juarez, just across the Mexican border from El Paso, Texas. U.S. and Mexican officials continued searching the sites today, but they are keeping the press at a distance. Officials from both countries believe there may be more than a hundred people buried in the graves, including perhaps more than twenty Americans. Authorities theorize that the graves contain victims of a major drug cartel based in Ciudad Juarez.
