2014 Iguala Kidnapping and Massacre

Collected by: Emporia State University Educational Account 2

Archived since: Nov, 2014


On September 26, 2014, police and unidentified gunman believed to be drug cartel gang members allegedly ambushed a convoy of buses carrying teacher-trainee student activists from Ayotzinapa College in the state of Guerrero. In the central plaza of Iguala, six persons were shot to death. Three of the victims were students. The other three were random citizens that happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The attack was brutal. Seventeen other students were wounded, and forty-three others were kidnapped. The activists were committed to helping small rural farmers and farm workers and were opposed to the new education reforms implemented by the government. The drug traffickers, their bosses, and the local politicians did not like the students' activism for various reasons. Twenty two police officers are now in custody for homicide and kidnapping along with four alleged drug traffickers. The mayor of Iguala and his wife are said to be behind the kidnapping, and the Governor of Guerrero has resigned under pressure. In the weeks after the disappearance of the students, nine mass graves have been discovered in the hills outside of Iguala. The bodies had been doused with gasoline and set on fire. It is not known if these are the bodies of the abducted students. As of December 2014, the official word is that none of the kidnapped students have been definitively found.

Foreign Relations of the US

Collected by: Stanford University, Social Sciences Resource Group

Archived since: May, 2009


The Foreign Relations of the United States series is the official documentary historical record of major U.S. foreign policy decisions that have been declassified and edited for publication. The series is produced by the State Department's Office of the Historian and printed volumes are available from the Government Printing Office.

FRUS begins with the administration of Abraham Lincoln in 1861. There are two cumulative indexes covering 1861-1899 and 1900-1918. The organization of FRUS is generally chronological, but the dates of the volumes do not necessarily reflect the dates of documentary history. For example, the volumes for 1900-1918 do not include the records dealing with World War I or the Russian Revolution. Each volume has a subject and author index. There is also typically a table of sources and abbreviations at the beginning of each volume. We're extremely interested -- for purely academic reasons -- in how this collection is being used and would be grateful if users would share that information with us. Please email James Jacobs, Government Information Librarian, at jrjacobs AT stanford DOT edu. User privacy is extremely important so of course any stories and personal information will be kept strictly confidential.
