“The administration of Mexico’s president has accused the press and volunteer searchers who look for the bodies of missing people of ‘necrophilia,’ comments that drew criticism this week. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is known for insulting people he views as opponents. But a pre-taped segment prepared by state-run television that was aired Wednesday at his morning press briefing used unusually crude language. It accused reporters and volunteer searchers of suffering ‘a delirium of necrophilia’ for having reported on a suspected clandestine crematorium on the outskirts of Mexico City. … The attack appeared aimed at Ceci Flores, who has spent much of the last decade looking for the bodies of her two missing sons without much help from the government.” (05/09/24)
