Students of the Ayotzinapa Teacher Training College "Raul Isidro Burgos" have started protests, demanding the government find 43 of their classmates missing since last month's deadly clashes, outside the City Hall in Chilpancingo, in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero.

On 26 September, police allegedly linked to a criminal gang shot dead at least three students and abducted dozens of others during clashes in the southwestern city of Iguala. Forty-three of the students are still missing and public anger has mounted since the state government found mass graves filled with burned corpses in the hills outside Iguala and said it believes many of the students may be among the victims.
