Mexican federal police orchestrated the assassination of 43 students, probably with the collaboration of the army

Proceso has a story out on this. The English version by the Guardian says this:

Mexican federal authorities had real-time information of an attack on a group of student teachers by corrupt local police, but did nothing to stop the disappearance and probable massacre of 43 people, according to new evidence published by the news magazine Proceso.

But this is not quite what Proceso says. Anabel Hernandez and Steve Fisher write:

The attack was orchestrated and executed by the Federal Police, with complicity or open collaboration with the Army.

Federal forces participated in the attack against the students of the normal (college) of Ayotzinapa in the night of last 26 Sept in Iguala, Guerrero, during which attack three students died and 43 were disappeared in a series of actions known in real time by the federal government.

Deep in The Guardian’s article, they get around to saying what Hernandez and Fisher said, calling it a “contentious claim.”

What is with the Guardian, that it can’t get its Latin American coverage right? And what is with the US government that surely knows that the government of Pena Nieto is engaged in terrorism?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
