Authorities have charged the former mayor of Iguala, Mexico, the southwestern town where 43 students disappeared in September last year, in the students’ kidnapping.
The head of criminal investigations for the Mexico attorney general's office announced Tuesday authorities had an arrest warrant for Jose Luis Abarca and dozens of other suspects in the case.
In December one of the 43 students was identified among incinerated remains in a remote dump. The others are believed to have suffered a similar fate after being attacked by Iguala police officers.
