Mexico: protesters demand answers over missing student teachers

Demonstrators have taken to the streets in Mexico’s southwestern state of Guerrero, to demand answers over the disappearance of 43 apprentice teachers.

Around 100 people marched through the streets of the state capital Chilpancingo towards the government palace, where they held a rally.

During the march, protesters took down political advertising and warned they would not allow federal elections to take place next month.

The missing students, aged between 18 and 23, vanished from the Ayotzinapa Teachers’ College last September.

Amnesty International estimates that more than 25-thousand people have disappeared or gone missing in Mexico, almost half of them during the presidency of Enrique Pena Nieto.
