Demonstrators marched in the Mexican capital after the release of a damning report on the investigation of the feared massacre of 43 student teachers in 2014. Julie Noce reports.
Protesters marched through the streets of Mexico City on the 19th month anniversary of the feared massacre of 43 student teachers. Demonstrators carried torches and photos of some of the missing who are thought to have been killed in 2014 by a drug gang. The march comes just days after a damning report by an independent panel investigating the incident. The panel said it had been repeatedly obstructed and the government did not let its members re-interview detainees accused of involvement. The marchers, while disheartened by the panels findings, vowed to continue their fight for answers. We're sad about the investigation since the group of experts is leaving, one protester said. But we're here to remind the president we will not rest. The case has drawn international attention and stirred protests and outrage in Mexico, where violence has surged in a decade-long drug war. Lawlessness in parts of the country has tarnished President Enrique Pena Nieto's reputation.
