Pope speaks out on 43 Mexican students who were assassinated

(-ONLY  VIDEO-) In light of the mass killing of 43 Mexican students in the state of Guerrero, Pope Francis expressed his closeness to the country and to the victims' families.  The students went missing on September 26th as they were getting ready to hold a protest against the local government. They were never heard from since. According to official reports, they were kidnapped, burned and their remains thrown into a river.  PAPA FRANCISCO "I want to somehow express to Mexicans present here, and also to those in Mexico, my closeness  during this painful time, in light of the legal disappearance of students, who were assassinated. It's here that the dramatic reality of criminality becomes visible. It lies behind the sale and business of drug trafficking. I'm with you and your families.â? KLH  CTV VM -PR UP: PM
