MOSCOW, December 10 (Sputnik) — US President Barack Obama offered assistance to Mexico in investigating the disappearance of 43 students detained in September by local police, during an interview with Telemundo.

"This will be investigated. We've offered assistance in tracking down exactly what happened, our forensic capabilities, our capacity to get to the bottom of exactly what happened," Obama said, commenting on the disappearance of 43 male student-teachers staging a peaceful protest in the Mexican town of Iguala in September.

Intercepted by local police, many of the protesters were then handed over to a criminal gang. The missing young men were killed, according to the official investigation report. Mexican authorities believe the mayor of Iguala and his wife to be primarily responsible for the crime.

Obama said that the "gruesome report" of missing students had "no place in the civilized society."

Obama's comments on the crime allegedly committed by Mexican politicians, police and their criminal associates come amid the high-profile release of a US Senate report on secret US government torture tactics.
