A court in Mexico has charged the former mayor of Cocula, Cesar Penaloza Santana, with links to organized crime.

The town hit the headlines last year when local police officers were linked to the disappearance of 43 students.

According to BBC News, the government said corrupt officers from Cocula and nearby Iguala abducted the 43 and handed them over to a local drug gang that then killed them.
