Two more Ayotzinapa students are gunned down

Two years after the 26 September 2014 abduction and disappearance of 43 students from the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers’ College in the state of Guerrero [previously], two more the school have been murdered.

From teleSUR English:

The bodies of two students from the Rural Teachers College of Ayotzinapa were found among five who were killed allegedly by paramilitary groups in the area, speakers of the school said Wednesday.

The school is the same school that had enrolled the 43 students who were forcibly disappeared and presumed murdered two years ago in the nearby city of Iguala, in the violence-ravaged southern state of Guerrero.

Jonathan Morales and Filemon Tacuba were killed on Tuesday in the Tixtla-Chilpancingo highway, while they were aboard a public transportation van that was intercepted by gunmen who forced them and other passengers to get off the vehicle and shot them at the foot of the road, in what authorities described as an execution.

The students were returning from internships as part of the activities of their senior year.

The bodies of Jonathan and Filemon were mourned Wednesday morning at the Ayotzinapa college. The student’s committee said that there is widespread fear on the campus which has forced many students to leave the men-only boarding school.
