Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto Monday said the authorities will investigate and bring to justice those responsible for the recent shooting incidents that caused massive deaths and disappearance of students in south Mexico.
At a press conference in Mexico City, held specifically to address the incidents in the violence-torn state of Guerrero, Pena Nieto said he was "offended and disconcerted" by the events and the subsequent discovery on Saturday of six mass graves with the burnt bodies of 28 people.
"I have instructed (authorities) to take steps ... to thoroughly investigate the events, find those responsible and rigorously apply the law," said Pena Nieto.
"Within the rule of law, there is no room for impunity," he added.
Authorities presume the bodies uncovered in six mass graves of Iguala city could be of the missing students, who disappeared on Sept. 26 from the city after gunmen opened fire on a group of people, killing six.
Three of the victims have been confirmed to be students. Forensic tests are ongoing, media reported.
The gunmen are believed to be members of the Iguala municipal police working for a local organized crime syndicate, the daily Excelsior said on its website.
