Eight years after the disappearance of 43 students in Mexico, relatives have criticized backsliding in the investigation. The accused were recently arrested, said the family's lawyer, Vidulfo Rosales, at a protest march in Mexico City. However, several other arrest warrants were canceled again. On the fringes of the rally, there were clashes between some masked demonstrators and the police, as was seen on television.
Most recently, a truth commission had described the act as a state crime and declared the students dead. The committee said the military were also partly to blame. The then commander of the 27th Infantry Battalion in Iguala and the former Attorney General were arrested after the report was published.
