At least eight bodies have been pulled from a well near the site in Mexico where an entire band went missing following a performance last Friday, a forensic official told the Associated Press.

A total of 20 people, including 16 band members and crew, disappeared after a show at a bar in Hidalgo, northern Mexico.

Residents near the bar reported hearing gunshots in the early hours following the performance.

The official said the body count was likely to rise.
