    Parents of 43 missing Mexican students demand new probe

    Sept.25, Mexico City: Families of 43 Mexican students who disappeared a year ago in southern Mexico demanded a new probe into their fate on Thursday.

    They also accused President Enrique Pena Nieto of ignoring their demands to solve a crime that has battered Mexico's image. The 43 students were missing since September 26, 2014.

    President Pena Nieto said that he will create a new special prosecutor for all of the country's thousands of missing people.

    The families asked the government to launch a new internationally supervised investigation and to review Mexico's own investigators.

    The president's spokesman Eduardo Sanchez told the reporters after the closed-door meeting on Thursday that the families had presented eight demands and that Pena Nieto had instructed his cabinet to analyze each and get back to them.

    According to the government data, more than 25,000 people have disappeared in Mexico between 2007 and July 31, 2015.
