Around 15 students from the Ayotzinapa teacher-training college were detained and 20 injured in attacks by state police in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero Wednesday night. Mexican authorities told local media outlets on Thursday that police attacked the students with tear gas and batons after the students had allegedly highjacked a tanker truck carrying 30,000 liters of gasoline.
It was in Guerrero that 43 students were disappeared in September last year, a situation that has drawn international attention to the problems of state corruption and impunity for human rights abuses in Mexico. Violent crime has also continued to increase in Guerrero since their disappearances.
