Alberto Cilia Ocampo, a thin 21-year-old university student and regional
chess champion from Mexico City, came to Oaxaca to document cases of
forced disappearances and other human rights violations on Monday.

Little did he know that within hours of his arrival, he would become the
next case.

At 4 p.m. Monday, hooded state police officers grabbed Cilia off the
street together with Sarah Weldon, a 22-year-old French university student
and Omar Rodrguez Camarena, a 28-year-old graduate student in history,
and whisked them off in the back of a state police pickup truck.

"I saw two guys wearing ski masks approach me. They grabbed my head,
slapped me in the face, forced me down and put a hood over my head," Cilia
said through the metal grating of the state penitentiary in Ixcotel.
