Jamaica Gleaner - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

MEX­ICO CITY (AP): A FED­ERAL judge in Mex­ico has or­dered that a once-fugi­tive po­lice chief be held on charges of kid­nap­ping in the dis­ap­pear­ance of 43 stu­dents.

The At­tor­ney Gen­eral’s Of­fice an­nounced the judge’s or­der in a brief state­ment late Tues­day.

Na­tional Se­cu­rity Com­mis­sioner Re­nato Sales said ear­lier Tues­day, in an in­ter­view with Ima­gen Ra­dio, that for­mer Iguala po­lice chief Fe­lipe Flores hasn’t pro­vided any in­for­ma­tion about the stu­dents’ lo­ca­tion.

The gov­ern­ment’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion de­ter­mined that lo­cal po­lice in Iguala in­ter­cepted sev­eral bus­loads of stu­dents from the Ru­ral Nor­mal School at Ay­otz­i­napa on Septem­ber 26, 2014. They were al­legedly turned over to a lo­cal drug car­tel and killed.

Flores was ar­rested on Fri­day in Iguala. Sales says he was caught vis­it­ing his wife at a friend’s house.
