Mexico's General Prosecutor of the Republic's Office (PGR) on Monday offered a reward of even 13 million Mexican pesos (more than 1 million U.S. dollars) for information leading to the capture of those who killed 72 migrants in Tamaulipas, north of the country.

The PGR said that it is looking for those who planed and executed the homicide of these undocumented migrants on Aug. 24, 2010 in San Fernando municipality of Tamaulipas state in the north of the country.

The PGR said that it has identified Roman Rincones alias "El Coyote" and Juvenal Burciaga alias "El Alacran" as people involved in the murder, and offered a reward of more than 7 million pesos (650,000 dollars) for them.

The PGR also offered 5 million pesos (411,000 dollars) for information leading to Jose Guadalupe Reyes alias "El Sasi", another man allegedly responsible for the murder.

These three men are charged with criminal organization, kidnapping, violation of the Fire Gun Federal Law, corruption, and homicide of 72 undocumented.

The PGR said that the information given must be true, effective and on time in order to find these people and arrest them.
