UN accuses Mexico's police of torture

The new UN report says there are strong indications that officials mainly from the attorney general's office tortured 34 of those it arrested.

    The UN human rights office is accusing Mexico's police of torturing dozens of people, while investigating the disappearance of 43 students four years ago.

    It says there's strong evidence some of those arrested were subjected to arbitrary detention and rights violations.
