Four months after 43 students from the Ayotzinapa Normal School were forcefully disappeared by the local police and a drug gang, the Mexican authorities are ready to close the case. The Mexican federal prosecutor said that the version of the events in which the students were killed, incinerated in a dump, and their remains disposed of in a river is a "historical truth."

They still believe that federal forces participated in the disappearance, and plan to continue escalating their protests until their sons are returned alive — even if it means confronting the army themselves.
