Mexico faces questions about missing from UN committee

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexico's permanent representative to the U.N. in Geneva says the country is making a priority of passing laws against forced disappearances and perfecting a database to track the missing.

Ambassador Jorge Lomonaco made the statement Monday after facing questions from a United Nations committee about 43 students who were seized by local police and disappeared.

Lomonaco said that while the committee's mandate does not include evaluating specific cases, Mexico is approaching the two-day meeting in a spirit of openness.

Mexico is one of 44 signatories to the 2006 International Convention for the Protection of all Persons from Enforced Disappearance.
