MEXICO CITY—A new investigation by Mexico’s government aimed at resolving the 2014 case of 43 college students abducted and killed in the southern Mexican city of Iguala relied on evidence that couldn’t be verified, a group of international experts said Monday.
A truth commission set up by the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to throw light on the case concluded in August that the students were killed in a “crime of the state” that involved drug gangs working with municipal, state, and federal authorities, as well as military officers.
