The protesters had traveled to Guerrero state’s southern city of Iguala on Monday to demand access to the barracks so they could search it.

After the protesters were denied access by soldiers, the group stole a truck and used it to ram the barrack’s gate.

“I am really mad because we came peacefully to ask military authorities to let us go in to look for our sons because we were told that they could be there,” said the father of a missing student.

Four people suffered slight injuries during their incursion into the base which was stopped by forces after around 20 meters.’
