México, the darkest hour

En Portada travels to the State of Guerrero, the heart of the violence in Mexico

Survivors and relatives of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa talks to En Portada.

The disappearance of 43 students in the State of Guerrero, where the number of deaths and violence makes it similar to a country at war, has shaken in a special way to Mexico and the international community. After months of investigations, the Procuraduría General de la República, the Attorney General of Mexico, has concluded that the students were kidnapped by local policemen related to drug traffickers, and burnt to death. But forensics cannot certify the ashes found in a rubbish dump belong to the students and the families keep the weak hope they may be still alive.

The Ayotzinapa Case has exposed the Government of Peña Nieto and has made public the shocking figures of the drug business in Mexico, controlled by groups of Narcos who are the root of most of the violent deaths, kidnaps and extortions in Mexico. En Portada traces the painful portrait of a country who wants to detach from its violent heritage.
