MEXICO CITY---Mexican authorities did not notify
families of 43 college students who disappeared
after a clash with police that some of the young
men s clothing was discovered shortly after they
went missing, a group of independent experts said
The Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts
also reported that security videos containing visual
evidence may have been destroyed.
The group said it will issue a final report on Sep-
tember 6, but wants its investigative mandate extend-
ed beyond that date.
The 43 students from the Rural Normal Ayotzinapa
teachers college disappeared last September in the
nearby city of Iguala, in the southern state of Guer-

MEXICO CITY---A tractor-trailer rig that swerved
to avoid another vehicle had 10 people packed into
the cab when it crashed, burned and fell 65 feet off
a bridge, killing everyone aboard, authorities in
western Mexico say.
Prosecutors in Michoacan state said late Monday
that six of the people who died over the weekend
were children. All were from the same small town,
but there was no explanation of why so many people
were in the cab.
The accident began when a sport utility vehicle
crashed into a median barrier on a bridge that crosses
over a railroad line. Both occupants were injured but
The driver of the tractor-trailer swerved to avoid
the SUV, but the truck flipped onto its side and skid-
ded about 15 yards, leaving the cab hanging off the
side of the bridge.
The cab then caught fire and fell off the bridge
onto the railroad tracks below. (AP)
KINGSTON--- Jamaica s culture minister says the
government will refurbish the boyhood home of
black nationalist leader Marcus Garvey and make
it a heritage site.
Lisa Hanna says her ministry wants people to visit
the home in northern St Ann parish and "pay tribute
to a man who left a great legacy." A timeline for the
project was not provided yesterday.
Garvey founded the Universal Negro Improvement
Association in Jamaica in 1914. He inspired millions
while transforming it into a mass movement while
in New York.
He was convicted in the US of mail fraud and was
deported back to his Jamaican homeland in 1927. He
died in London in 1940.
Garvey was the first person named a Jamaican
national hero following the island s independence
from Britain in 1962. (AP)

ECUADOR---Ecuadorean authorities said Monday
that up to 325,000 people live in areas that could be
threatened by fast-moving mud and rock flows if
there is a major eruption of the Cotopaxi volcano.

porters as bad weather scrapped a planned flyover of
the snow-capped 5,897-metre (19,600-foot) volcano,
which is 30 miles south of Quito.
Cotopaxi last rumbled Saturday, when it shot ash
more than two miles high and spilled some lava. Four
hundred people were evacuated briefly.
