Mexican authorities have rescued 165 kidnap victims who had been held in the northeastern border state of Tamaulipas for weeks, the country's Interior Ministry said Thursday.

A majority of the victims -- 150 -- are Central American migrants. Another 14 are Mexican nationals, and one is from India, the ministry said.

They were held captive for as many as three weeks, officials said.

Drug cartels that operate in the area are known to have kidnapped migrants in the past and requested ransoms for their release.
