Iguala was rocked by another day of violence and anarchy on Wednesday, as different groups of protesters set fire to town hall and looted a shopping mall on the outskirts of town.
The southern Mexico city has been making world headlines since municipal policemen attacked a group of student protesters from the Ayotzinapa teachers’ college last month. Cops allegedly handed over the students to drug traffickers to do their dirty work. Forty-three students are still missing.
On Wednesday, students and teachers marched through central Iguala in a loud but peaceful protest to demand information about their missing colleagues.
The mood changed when the crowd passed city hall, where some protesters stopped to shatter the building’s windows with rocks and clubs.
