Relatives of the students who went missing on September 26 last year in Iguala in Guerrero state, marched on Sunday, calling for the investigation to continue.

"We demand the re-launching of the search and the reopening of the case, which this corrupt government has refused to do," said Vidulfo Rosales, a lawyer for the students' families.

According to the official account, the missing students who were attending a rural school for teachers were attacked on the orders of the then mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Abarca.

Authorities say the 43 students were abducted by corrupt local police who handed them over to a drug gang which is believed to have killed them and burned their remains.

Families of the victims do not believe the official report, however, and insist that the alleged role of federal forces in the case be investigated.

...The march on Sunday came as Mexico's attorney general's office released a report showing that at least 60 clandestine graves and 129 bodies have been found over the last 10 months during the search for the missing students. Only one of the 43 students has been identified among the discovered remains, however.
