At least 5,000 students at Mexico’s National University of Chihuahua, demanding that the president step down because of alleged misuse of funds, hijacked 80 city buses and taxis and threatened to burn them, police said. The students in Chihuahua City, 900 miles northwest of Mexico City, are demanding a complete accounting of the university’s $14-million annual budget and the resignation of President Humberto de las Casas for alleged “abuses of authority,” news reports said.
