MEXICO CITY - Mexican security forces have found 32 bodies at several locations around the eastern city of Veracruz, authorities said on Thursday, barely two weeks after 35 corpses were dumped on a busy street in the Atlantic port.

Just two days after the Mexican government unveiled a plan to lay down the law in the state of the same name, police and marines found the bodies in three separate areas of the city, the Navy said in a statement.

The bodies were in homes around the port as the military conducted operations under the new "Safe Veracruz" program, the statement said. Twenty bodies were found in one house that was searched after a tip from naval intelligence.

More than 44,000 people have died in drug-related violence since President Felipe Calderon launched a military campaign to crush Mexico's powerful drug cartels in late 2006.
