What are being described as historic protests are gripping Mexico over the disappearance of 43 college students. Government officials are now saying three suspects from a narco gang confessed to the killings and disposing of the students’ bodies. Thousands have taken part in the protests that have raged across the country in recent days, and including the burning of the door of the ceremonial presidential Palace in Mexico City. The students belong to a radical teachers college, and on September 26, traveled to Iguala in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero to commandeer buses for a later protest, when police allegedly opened fire on them, killing six. Then the 43 were handed over to a notorious local drug gang with connections to the town’s mayor, who along with his wife are among the dozens who have been arrested in connection to the disappearances.
