People march Monday, January 26, during a protest in Mexico City for the 43 college students who went missing four months ago in the Mexican state of Guerrero. A day later, Mexican Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said there is "legal certainty" that the students "were abducted, killed, burned and thrown into the San Juan River, in that order." At least 99 suspects have been detained so far. Daniel Cardenas/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images
