Journalist Anabel Hernandez presents her new book, “What Really Happened in Iguala.” On September 26, 2014, Mexican police and military forces attacked 43 students from the Ayotzinapa teachers college in Iguala, Guerrero. These students were no longer found after the said attack.
In What Really Happened in Iguala (La Verdadera Noche de Iguala), Hernandez traverses the labyrinth of the Ayotzinapa case, its traps, it darkness and light. The reader sees the streets where the events took place, the bullet casings, and sandals left on the ground; hears the voices of the Ayotzinapa students; visits the places where torture was applied to manufacture guilt, as well as the offices of high-level officials who carried out the cover-up.
