Student leader Omar García says the recent allegations, which stem from an intercepted phone call detailing a recent attempted kidnapping at the Ayotzinapa college involving local cartels, are designed to discredit the college.
The wave of armed attacks, abductions and general violence in the last couple of weeks highlights the failure of multiple security operations in the last year.
Were they community police, or sympathizers of a rival drug gang? The armed people who took over Chilapa may have also taken at least 14 people who remain missing. Guerrero's governor met with the alleged kidnappers anyway.
With the case of the 43 missing students still looming over the state, Guerrero officials now say another probably mass disappearance took place after unknown men entered a town to 'free' it from a drug gang.
