Experts with the Mexican Attorney General’s Office are scouring an area near the town of Cocula for the bodies of the 43 students who disappeared on September 26 near the city of Iguala.

The officials started working on Tuesday at the dump located in a hard-to-access zone about 10 km from Cocula and half an hour from Iguala, which is in the southern state of Guerrero.

The dump covers some 40 square meters, half of which shows signs of having been burned.

A dozen forensic experts have cordoned off the area and placed little orange flags at certain spots in the dump, presumably to designate places to dig.

The AG’s office came to the site after four members of the Guerreros Unidos drug cartel said they had participated in the students’ disappearance.
