    Mexicans march on anniversary of 43 missing students

    Sept.27, Mexican City: Thousands of people marked the one-year anniversary of the disappearance of 43 students by marching down Mexico City's premier avenue in an atmosphere of defiant hope.

    The parents of 43 missing students have led a march, many carrying photos of their loved ones, demanding justice. They want the government to hand over the investigation to a special unit under international supervision.

    A group of independent experts has suggested the students were killed because they unknowingly took control of a bus carrying illegal drugs, and the government did nothing to protect them.

    Activists said that the movement might bring justice for Mexico's disappeared, though only two of the students' remains have been identified by DNA analysis of charred bone fragments.

    The students were disappeared on 26 September 2014, in Iguala in the southern Guerrero state

    According to the government, more than 25,000 people disappeared in Mexico between 2007 and July 31, 2015.
