The case gets even more gruesome as more information becomes available, according UN experts.

The investigations on the murder and disappearance of students in the Mexican state of Guerrero represents a test of the capacities and will of the government to face this sort of serious violations of human rights, according to experts from the United Nations.

Experts from the UN condemned the incidents from September 26 and 27 in Iguala, with the participation of members of the municipal police, and which ended with the death of 17 people and 43 students missing.

In a press report, they said that this sort of conduct is reprehensible and unacceptable.

They added that the more information is received about the incident, the more horrible it gets to be, with all the data available about the burned bodies found in common graves.

Meanwhile, representatives in Mexico of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights met with the governor of Guerrero, Ángel Aguirre Rivero, to talk about the situation.
