Bod­ies in 60 graves

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

THE search for 43 miss­ing col­lege stu­dents in the south­ern Mex­i­can state of Guer­rero has turned up at least 60 clan­des­tine graves and 129 bod­ies over the past 10 months, Mex­i­can of­fi­cials say. None of the re­mains has been con­nected to the youths who dis­ap­peared af­ter a clash with po­lice in the city of Iguala on Septem­ber 26 last year, and author­i­ties do not be­lieve any will be. Pros­e­cu­tors say the stu­dents were turned over to a drug gang that killed them and in­cin­er­ated their bod­ies.
