Missing Mexican Students' Mothers in Philadelphia Hope to Meet Pope
A year has passed since 43 college students disappeared in Mexico. Controversy is rising over the details surrounding what happened to the students, with a new report contradicting the Mexican government’s account.
Now, activists have flown five of the students’ mothers to Philadelphia in hopes they can meet with Pope Francis while he’s there.
As Bobby Allyn of Here & Now contributor WHYY in Philadelphia reports, the Pope has called the students’ disappearance a murder and the mothers and activists want him to pressure the Mexican government to take further action on the case.
