Courts free more suspects in case of disappeared studentsCourts have freed another 24 people implicated in one of the country’s most notorious crimes, the disappearance of 43 students, a federal official said Sunday. Deputy Interior Secretary Alejandro Encinas told a news conference that the detainees were freed the previous evening after courts found various violations of due process in their cases, including torture and arbitrary detention. Authorities say leftist students from the Ayotzinapa teacher’s school were abducted by police in the Guerrero state town of Iguala in September 2014 and handed over to the drug gang Guerreros Unidos headed by Gildardo López Astudillo, who was freed earlier this month.
