MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's government said on Friday evidence suggests that 43 missing trainee teachers were murdered and their charred remains tipped in a rubbish dump and a river in southwest Mexico, citing the confessions of three detained gang members.

Attorney General Jesus Murillo said the detainees, caught a week ago, admitted setting fire to members of the group in a rubbish dump near Iguala in the state of Guerrero, where the students went missing on Sept. 26 after clashing with police.
