More on the Tec Students
You may remember a major scandal last month when two students outside of the prestigious Tec de Monterrey were killed in the midst of a series of confrontations between the army and drug traffickers in Monterrey. The government initially claimed that the students were criminals, and it was university who officials who wound up debunking that myth. Now the PGR says that the bullet that killed one of the students didn't come from the army. A spokesman for the agency actually offered a long, detailed explanation of how the students were killed in a crossfire, but unfortunately the explanations comes almost six weeks after the event and after a series of misstatements referred to above, so the potential benefit of such a long, detailed explanation has been undermined a great deal.
