Classes sus­pended af­ter at­tempted kid­nap­pings

THE (Times Higher Education) - - NEWS -

A univer­sity in Mex­ico has sus­pended classes af­ter a spate of kid­nap­ping at­tempts by armed gangs be­lieved to be tar­get­ing fe­male stu­dents. At least six in­ci­dents are re­ported to have taken place on dif­fer­ent cam­puses and schools of the Au­ton­o­mous Univer­sity of Guer­rero in Aca­pulco over the past few weeks. The univer­sity’s rec­tor, Javier Sal­daña Al­mazán (pic­tured above), told the news­pa­per Mile­nio that the most re­cent at­tempted ab­duc­tion by armed in­di­vid­u­als had taken place on 19 Oc­to­ber. “It is very strange,” Pro­fes­sor Sal­daña told jour­nal­ists. “I do not know what mes­sage they want to send or what is hap­pen­ing.”
