MEXICO CITY (AP) — Federal police early Tuesday detained the former mayor of the southern Mexican city of Iguala, who officials say ordered the Sept. 26 attacks on teachers' college students that left six dead and 43 missing.

Jose Luis Abarca and his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda, were arrested in Mexico City without resisting, according to two security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press. They provided no other details.
