Since the disappearance of the students, the local police has been removed, two-dozen bodies have been found in shallow graves and arrest warrants have been issued for the mayor of Iguala.

In Mexico's state of Guerrero, families of more than 40 missing students continue to demand their safe return. Since their disappearance on Sept. 26, the local police has been removed, two-dozen bodies have been found in shallow graves and arrest warrants have been issued for the mayor of Iguala and his wife.

Over the weekend, more graves were found, and yesterday students and teachers from the Ayotzinapa teachers’ college protested over the lack of information. NPR Mexico correspondent Carrie Kahn says it's unclear where the students are and it's hard to believe they are still alive considering the amount of police assigned to search for them.
