They protest the release of eight soldiers involved in the disappearance of 43 students.

(EUROPA PRESS).- Students from the Ayotzinapa normal school threw explosive devices against the facade of the National Palace in Mexico City this Monday during a protest for the release of eight soldiers supposedly involved in the disappearance of 34 of their colleagues in 2014.

The Military Police that guards the historic site has resorted to shields and fire extinguishers inside, according to the Mexican newspaper ‘El Universal’. The students boarded trucks to leave after the launch of the devices.

Last Thursday, eight soldiers accused of organized crime in the Ayotzinapa case were released from the Military Camp 1-A prison.

The 34 students from the Ayotzinapa rural teacher training school disappeared on September 26, 2014 after being chased by gunfire and detained by police, who handed them over to the Guerrero Unidos criminal group for unexplained reasons.

For years, the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto defended that they were murdered by this criminal gang when they were confused with another rival, but the normalistas denounce that it is a state crime.
