MEXICO CITY (AP) - Federal authorities in Mexico say they have rescued 35 people who had been kidnapped for ransom in the southern state of Guerrero.

The Attorney General's Office said Wednesday that federal investigators aided by marines also arrested four suspected kidnappers.

The office says the kidnap victims have been given medical and psychological attention because they showed signs of severe malnutrition and had injuries from being kept in inhumane conditions by their captors.

The statement says federal authorities located the victims as part of an investigation to locate four people who went missing in Guerrero in October.

It says the criminal group that kidnapped the 35 people has a gang presence in the towns of Apaxtla, Arcelia, Cocula and Teloloapan. It hasn't identified the gang.
