Mexico mass grave discovered after student protesters go missing

A mass grave has been found on the outskirts of Iguala, in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, where 43 students went missing on September 27 following a protest to support the rights of rural teachers.

Authorities are conducting forensic examinations of “up to 20” charred remains discovered on Saturday in an effort to determine if they are the remains of the students, Guerrero Attorney General Inaky Blanco told reporters in Iguala on Saturday.

The disappearance of the students came after police opened fire on buses carrying the protesters, killing six people. Twenty-two police officers are being held for questioning following the spate of violence, while arrest warrants have been posted for the mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Albarca and his security chief.
