‘Protesters in the Mexican state of Guerrero have torched the ruling party’s regional headquarters as part of their demonstrations to achieve justice for the 43 missing students who disappeared in September.
The attack on the regional headquarters of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) building in Chilpancingo is the latest violent protest to explode in Mexico over the incident. In a separate incident, protesters also blocked the airport in the city of Acapulco.
The protests at the airport began on Monday with thousands of demonstrators blocking its entrance for three hours.
A group of masked protesters, armed with bats, metal pipes and machetes clashed with riot police who tried to block them from getting through to the airport. After negotiations, the police let them through.
While the airport was barricaded for three hours tourists had to walk to their planes, Reuters reports.’
