Students arrested after protests in Mexico

  • Several students have been arrested in Mexico City after fresh protests broke out on Sunday, November 9, over the death of 43 students in Iguala town, according to media reports.

    Authorities had earlier said that members of a gang had killed the students and burnt their bodies, and the killers were acting on the orders of the local police.

    The government’s response to the students' disappearance has triggered protests in several parts of Mexico.

    Over 70 people have been arrested in the case, including Iguala’s mayor Jose Luis Abarca and his wife.
