Mexican government suspects mayor in students' disappearance

Mexico's attorney general said Wednesday that the mayor of the city of Iguala, Jose Luis Abarca, and his wife were the "probable masterminds" of the disappearance of 43 student-teachers last month. The students from Iguala, which is in the southwestern state of Guerrero, have not been seen since they clashed with police on Sept. 26. A gang leader told authorities that the mayor ordered police to prevent the students from disrupting a political event. Reuters has more.
