Mexico officials: 3 missing film
students believed slain
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Authorities in the western Mexico state of Jalisco say they believe three film students missing since last month were killed and dissolved in acid.
The Jalisco Attorney General’s Office says two men have been arrested and there are arrest orders for four others in the case.
The students were abducted March 19 on the outskirts of Guadalajara after working on a film project for school at a location that was apparently being watched by members of the Jalisco New Generation cartel.
Authorities said at a news conference Monday that the students were taken to another location where one was beaten to death. Then the other two were killed.
Prosecutors say the bodies were taken to a third location, where investigators believe they were dissolved in sulfuric acid.
North Korea’s Kim meets Chinese
envoy after deadly bus crash
BEIJING (AP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has met with China’s ambassador at a hospital where Chinese tourists were being treated after a deadly bus crash.
The official Xinhua News Agency said late Monday that a tourist bus fell from a bridge Sunday evening in North Hwanghae province in southern North Korea. The Foreign Ministry previously said the crash killed 32 Chinese and four North Koreans, and two Chinese were seriously injured.
Photos provided by Pyongyang on Tuesday showed Kim meeting with Ambassador Li Jinjun at the hospital and at the Chinese Embassy.
Chinese tourists make up the vast majority of visitors to North Korea, where they often pay homage at sites related to China’s participation in the war.
