As Obama Hosts Peña Nieto, Explosive Report Ties Mexican Federal Police to Students’ Disappearance

As President Obama hosts Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto at the
White House today, human rights groups want Obama to press the Mexican
government on its failure to investigate and prosecute abuses by state
security forces. The meeting comes on the heels of an explosive new
report that directly contradicts the Mexican government’s claims they
were unaware of what happened the night 43 students went missing after
an attack by local police in the state of Guerrero. According to the
Mexican magazine Proceso, federal police played a role in the attack,
and federal authorities likely tortured key witnesses. The case has
ignited protests across Mexico and around the world. We are joined by
the reporters who broke the story, Anabel Hernández and Steve Fisher.
Hernández is a leading Mexican investigative journalist and author of
"Narcoland: The Mexican Drug Lords and Their Godfathers."
