Tensions high in Mexico after teacher dies in Acapulco protest

Protesters march in the southwestern Mexican state of Guerrero on Wednesday to voice their anger over the death of a protester the day before.

Police in riot gear watched as they walked through the streets carrying machetes and bats.

Late Tuesday night in Acapulco teachers protesting education reforms clashed with police. A 65-year-old man died in the chaos.

Autopsy reports on Wednesday showed the man died of severe trauma to the chest.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) MEXICO’S SECURITY COMMISSIONER MONTE RUBIDO, SAYING:

“The autopsy concludes that the person died due to a deep chest trauma. This coincides with a medical report in the naval hospital which concluded that the injuries were the result of crushing.”

The region has seen almost daily protests since the disappearance last year of 43 students feared massacred by a local drug gang in collaboration with corrupt authorities.
