Forensic experts who studied a dump in Mexico where government officials claim the bodies of 43 missing students were burned say a new investigation of the site is incomplete and inconclusive.

The Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team said the latest investigation by a team of experts "neither confirms nor denies" the official version of what happened to the students from the Rural Normal School at Ayotzinapa.

The Argentines were called in shortly after the students disappeared in Iguala on September 26 2014.

A federal investigation concluded they were killed by a local drug gang and their bodies burned at the dump in the nearby town of Cocula.

The Argentines studied the dump and said the evidence did not support the official version of events.
