Two Students from Ayotzinapa Teachers College Killed by Gunmen

Mexico City, October 6 (RHC)-- In Mexico, two students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers’ College in the southern state of Guerrero have been killed by gunmen on Tuesday.  The attack came after gunmen stopped a bus traveling to the town of Tixtla.  

At least one other person was killed and three others wounded in the attack, including an 8-year-old boy.  It’s not known who the gunmen were.

Meanwhile, also in Mexico, a group of women who were reportedly kidnapped, tortured and raped by Mexican police officers 10 years ago have now taken their case to the Inter-American Human Rights Court.

The events occurred in San Salvador Atenco in the state of México.  The women were kidnapped amid two days of popular protests in May 2006, after police cracked down on a group of female flower sellers.  The current president of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, was the governor of the state of México at the time.
