MEXICO CITY (AP) — Prosecutors in Mexico say they have charged two men in the Jan. 15 disappearance of two environmental and community activists in a dangerous corner of western Mexico. Lawyer Ricardo Lagunes and schoolteacher Antonio Díaz have been missing for over three months. Federal prosecutors did not say whether the two were still alive, nor what evidence led them to charge the two suspects. Both suspects have been ordered to stand trial on charges of “disappearance,” defined as an abduction in which the victim isn’t heard from again. A rights group said Monday one of the suspects was a leader of a faction in the Indigenous community of Aquila.
