Mexico's top prosecutor says a mayor and his wife ordered the attack on 43 students who have been missing for nearly a month. The couple — of the town of Iguala in the southern state of Guerrero — are now fugitives.
He said that on the night of Sept. 26, as the students were heading
toward Iguala in several buses they had commandeered, the order to stop
them came over the local police radios — and that is was given by "A-5,"
the code name for Iguala's mayor.
Local police intercepted the
student's buses and started shooting, killing six people and rounding
up the 43 students. According to the attorney general, the students were
taken to another police force and then transported to the outskirts of
Iguala. Those orders, he said, came from the head of the Guerreros
Unidos, whom federal authorities captured last week.
General Murillo Karam said investigators are still trying to positively
identify the remains of some 30 bodies found in nine graves outside
But we're not supposed to worry about the border and who's crossing it, oh no...
Saw something on this early in the month, original story here.
Side thought: wonder if any of the guns Holder & Co. ran to the cartels were used in these murders?
