43 students from a rural teachers college of Ayotzinapa went missing in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico. They were intercepted by local police while they were traveling to hold a protest. Once the students were in custody, they were handed over to Guerreros Unidos crime syndicate and presumably killed.(Wikipedia.) Drawing inspired after “3rd of May Executions” by Goya.
