The army was behind the disappearances of 43 education students two years ago, with the likely knowledge of President Enrique Peña Nieto, highlighting the network of corruption that ties together those who hold power in Mexico, journalist Francisco Cruz said in an interview with EFE.

Cruz co-authored a new book, titled "La Guerra que nos ocultan" (Planeta), with Felix Santana and Miguel Angel Alvarado, using the killing of one student, Julio Cesar Mondragon, as the starting point for a detailed investigative work that ties together drug traffickers, the mining industry and the government.

"There is a plot managed by the army, but proposed by the state," Cruz said.

The families of the 43 Ayotzinapa Rural Normal School students who disappeared on Sept. 26, 2014, have called for an investigation of the army 27th Battalion's role in the case.

The military unit has its headquarters in Iguala, a city in the southern state of Guerrero.

The calls for an investigation of the battalion have gone nowhere.

The book, however, shows that soldiers played a role in the case.
