The New Age (Free State) - - NEWS -

MEX­ICO CITY: A sus­pected drug gang mem­ber re­garded as a key fig­ure in the kid­nap­ping and mas­sacre of 43 stu­dent teach­ers three years ago has been ar­rested. The atroc­ity plunged Pres­i­dent En­rique Pena Ni­eto’s govern­ment into one of its worst crises, as doubts swirled around the con­duct of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the case. The at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice said it had ar­rested Erick N, “a prob­a­ble mem­ber of a crim­i­nal or­gan­i­sa­tion” op­er­at­ing in the vi­o­lent south­west­ern state of Guer­rero. The govern­ment had put a bounty on Erick N’s head be­cause of his al­leged in­volve­ment in the mur­der of the stu­dent teach­ers who went miss­ing in Septem­ber 2014. –
