Ricardo Damian Torres, speaking from the offices of Mexico'south attorney general, said that tests would be conducted in the coming weeks to define whether it'd have been possible to burn all forty-three students who disappeared in Iguala on Sept.

A third investigation of a dump site in southern Mexico found proof of a large fire in which at least seventeen bodies were burned, a member of a six-person fire expert team said Friday.

Ricardo Damian Torres, speaking from the offices of Mexico'south attorney general, said that tests would be conducted in the coming weeks to define whether it'd have been possible to burn all forty-three students who disappeared in Iguala on Sept. twenty-six, two thousand fourteen in a case that's sparked large protests and become symbolic of the country'south human rights issues.

"There is sufficient evidence, including physically observable, to affirm that there was a controlled fire event of grand dimensions in the space called the Cocula dump," Torres said. He didn't declare when such a fire occurred or proposal any explanation as to how the team conducted its research and reached its conclusion.

The latest study comes after another team of international experts sent by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights concluded the students from the Rural Normal School at Ayotzinapa couldn't have been burned at the Cocula dump as the government has maintained.

The students disappeared after hijacking buses in Iguala. They were intercepted by local police and turned over to members of a local drug cartel.

The Mexican government'south investigation determined they were killed and incinerated at a rubbish dump exterior the nearby town of Cocula. It said their incinerated remains were then thrown in a nearby river. Genetic testing of remains the government said it recovered from the river confirmed the identities of two of the lost students.

The families of the missing students have strongly rejected the government's investigation.

In Friday'south press conference, Torres appeared beside Eber Betanzos, Mexico'south deputy attorney common for human rights, and took no questions.
