Human rights commission to continue monitoring Mexico case

WASHINGTON (AP) " The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights has adopted a plan to continue monitoring the investigation into the 2014 disappearance of 43 students in Mexico.

The commission laid out the elements of the agreement Friday with the support of the Mexican government and families of the missing.

Under the agreement, a representative of the commission will make at least three trips to Mexico to check on advances in the investigation and release a statement at the conclusion of each visit. In particular, the commission will be tracking care for wounded students, the search for the missing, the criminal investigation and attention to the victims.

On Sept. 26, 2014, local police in Iguala, Guerrero captured students from the Rural Normal School at Ayotzinapa and turned them over to a local drug cartel.
