Iguala's families search for answers

It’s been more than a year since 43 students disappeared from the town of Iguala, Mexico. The government says the students were killed by a drug gang and their bodies burned. But that explanation has been refuted by an international committee that has reviewed the case. The story of the 43 students has gotten a great deal of international media coverage. What hasn’t gotten as much notice is how many others have gone missing in the same region. According to a recent report by the Associated Press, at least 292 others have been reported to have gone missing from the area around Iguala . While many families are afraid to talk to the media, reporter Chris Sherman interviewed the relatives of 158 of the "other disappeared" He joins us to talk these other disappearances and he’ll give us an update on the case of the 43.
