Mexican authorities delivered on Tuesday clothing and objects linked to last year’s disappearance and presumed massacre of 43 students to an Austrian laboratory in a new bid to identify the victims.
The 53 items were handed over to the University of Innsbruck, which has only managed to confirm the identity of one of the students among 17 sets of charred remains sent by Mexico late last year.
The pieces of clothing and other objects were sent to Austria on a request by international experts of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission, which has been conducting its own investigation into a case that caused international outrage.
The items were “reviewed and catalogued” by prosecutors and members of the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team, the attorney general’s office said in a statement. The Argentine team is has worked on the case at the request of relatives of the missing because they do not trust the authorities.
