Civil unrest continues in Mexico over the kidnapping and execution of 43 education students from the rural town of Ayotzinapa, Mexico. The nation’s Human Rights Commission announced that they will be visiting a military installation as part of their investigation.

As previously reported by Breitbart Texas, police officers from the towns of Iguala and Cocula fired on and kidnapped 43 education students allegedly under orders of the now indicted mayor Jose Luis Abarca. The police officers then turned the students over to cartel members who executed them and incinerated their bodies before dumping the ashes in a nearby river.

The parents of the students remain skeptical of the government’s version of the events and believe that the federal government and its authorities may have been involved. One of the main points of dissent deals with the lack of evidence at the site where the students bodies were said to have been burned. Some protesters have even speculated that the bodies may have been incinerated in one of the military’s crematoriums which led to the parents of the students and a group of protesters to recently rush the Iguala military fort in an effort to find the students or their remains.

After the case, Mexico’s Secretary of the Interior Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said that there was no evidence of military involvement and that the accusations came from government opposition trying to take advantage of the situation, Mexican news pundit Joaquin Lopez Doriga reported. Chong said in Lopez Doriga’s show that the parents of the students had been invited to visit the military fort in Iguala, but had to do so with advance notice and in a respectful manner.

Through a prepared statement, Mexico’s Human Rights Commission announced their decision to visit and inspect the military installations after the Mexican Defense Secretariat made a formal invitation opening its doors.
