Members of a Mexican drug gang have admitted to massacring 43 students who went missing in September.

Attorney General Jesus Murillo said on Friday that three members in custody revealed that they set fire to the group, some of whom were still alive – at a garbage dump near Iguala in the state of Guerrero, close to where the students disappeared.

Members of the local police force have also been arrested and are believed to have played a role in rounding up the students so they could be executed.

Jose Luis Abarca, former mayor of Iguala, and his wife Maria de los Angeles Pineda were apprehended and placed under arrest in Mexico City on Monday.

Pineda demanded that police arrest they students when they threatened to ruin a speech she was giving, and once the police had the students they were then handed over to the members of the drug gang.

What has tragically been revealed, is that the students had no intention of disrupting Pineda’s speech, but were just travelling through the town on buses they’d hired to take them to Mexico City for a vigil in honor of students massacred there in 1968.

A massive outcry has continued throughout Mexico, demanding that justice is served for the mass execution.
