Team investigating missing 43 students in Mexico worried by delay to interview soldiers

Human rights team in Mexico still waits access to soldiers

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- A group of independent experts investigating the disappearance of 43 students in southern Mexico last year say they continue awaiting an answer from the government about whether they will be allowed to interview soldiers with knowledge of what happened.

The team from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights said Monday in a news conference that on Sunday the government wrote that more than three months after the request was made, officials continue analyzing it. The group said the delay limited their ability to advance.

The government says students from a rural teachers college in the state of Guerrero were seized by police in Iguala on Sept. 26, and turned over to a criminal gang that killed and incinerated them. The remains of only one of the students have been identified.
