Protesters demand answers on missing Mexico students


CHILPANCINGO, Mexico: Thousands of protesters blocked the highway to Acapulco in southern Mexico on Thursday to press authorities to find 43 students missing since a deadly police shooting last weekend. The demonstration was part of commemorations of a 1968 massacre of students by the army in Mexico City, but the protesters focused on the fate of the disappeared in violence-plagued Guerrero state. Parents of the missing led the march in the state capital Chilpancingo, holding signs saying “they were taken alive, we want them back,” as a sea of students, teachers and others followed behind.
