On Friday, a group of sixteen administrative employees working for the police in the Mexican state of Chiapas were finally set free after being held captive for three days. The employees had been abducted while traveling on a bus through Chiapas on Tuesday. Fortunately, the kidnappers decided to release seventeen female passengers who were also on the bus.
The abductors reportedly made specific demands, calling for the dismissal of three state security officials who were allegedly linked to an armed movement. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has taken the matter seriously and has vowed to initiate a thorough investigation into these individuals. As part of the negotiations, the release of the kidnapped police officers was secured.
