48 student teachers were arrested on Tuesday by police in the state of Chiapas in Mexico. The students were waiting for buses at a terminus in the city of Tapachula, to take them to a protest against the governments education 'reforms', which have been the subject of by teachers across the country. Police came in force to the terminus and took them away.

The teachers' union has started a campaign for their release. Latest reports say they are still missing. This is a very worrying development with frightening similarities to the case of the Ayotzinapa 43, who were also abducted by police as they travelled on buses.

Update 17/7/2015 According to reports on social media, the young people have now been freed by the police, who arrived in force on Tuesday to arrest them and stop them from going to the protest against education reform in the capital.
