Mexico Will Search for 10,000s Disappeared in Drug War

HeadlineFeb 05, 2019
H12 mexico search 10000 disappeared drug war

Mexican officials announced a plan Monday to search for tens of thousands of people who have disappeared in the country’s devastating drug war.

Alejandro Encinas: “There are 40,000 missing persons, more than 1,100 unmarked graves, around 26,000 unidentified bodies in the custody of forensic services. And that tells you the magnitude of the humanitarian crisis and the violation of human rights that we are facing and that we want to get beyond in our country.”

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador committed during his campaign to investigate the disappearances, and said he would set up truth commissions and a reparations system for victims.
