The students who have gone missing in the city of Iguala in Mexico’s Guerrero state have been killed, the country’s Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam has announced.

“I have no doubts that that night [September 26] the group of students was killed,” Karam has said in an interview to Televisa, Mexico’s top broadcaster.
The attorney general stressed that the most difficult task before the authorities right now is to determine how many of the killed students were burnt at a garbage dump in Cocula, the site of the suspected murder.
On Sunday, Karam confirmed that a burnt bone fragment discovered at the dump contained the DNA of one of the missing students, Alexander Mora Venancio.
The interim governor of Guerrero, Rogelio Ortega, announced three days of mourning in the state following the discovery, stressing that Mexican authorities will not stop until all of the students are found.
About a month ago, Murillo said that local drug gang members had confessed to murdering the students and burning their bodies at a Guerrero dump.
On September 26, a group of policemen, accompanied by armed gang members from local drug cartels, abducted students protesting against discriminatory hiring and funding practices in Iguala. Six people died in the initial conflict and 43 students went missing.
