Police searching dump for bodies of 43 students

A SEARCH for 43 students missing for more than a month has taken Mexican authorities to an enormous garbage dump.

Investigators are examining the open-air dump surrounded by mountains in the Guerrero town of Cocula, where corrupt police may have delivered the captured students to hitmen linked to a notorious drug cartel.

A Mexican Government source told media it was why examiners would look closely at the massive dump.

"Bones already have been found, but experts have to look at whether they are human or from other animals," they said.

The students disappeared on September 26 in a nearby town of Iguala after their buses were attack by police.

Six people were killed during the abduction.

The mayor of Iguala and his wife are now on the run, suspected of ordering the kidnapping.

About 2000 army troops with police are scouring the area by land and air in an effort to find the students.

No trace has been discovered so far.
