Mexico mass graves Some bodies found not that of students

first_imgThe governor of the southern Mexico state where 43 college students disappeared after a confrontation with police said that some of the bodies recovered from clandestine graves last weekend did not match the missing young people. The federal attorney general, however, said he felt it was too soon in testing of the remains to come to any conclusions. In indicating that some progress had been made in identifying the dead, Guerrero state governor Angel Aguirre gave no details nor did he say if all of the 28 bodies removed by forensic experts had been identified. The remains were uncovered severely burned, and experts are conducting DNA tests in an effort to identify the dead.  Also Read – Pro-Govt supporters rally as Hong Kong’s divisions deepenThe governor spoke at a news conference in Iguala, the city where municipal police have been accused of working with a drug gang in the disappearance of the students on 26 Sept. Attorney general Jesus Murillo Karam declined to confirm or dispute the governor’s comments. ‘I do not know on what the governor based that,’’ he said later in the Guerrero state capital, Chilpancingo. He added that experts still ‘have not finished testing.’’ Aguirre also gave no information on what authorities had found in other mass graves that were discovered.last_img
