    Mexican police: Weapons found at scene of protest clash that killed 2 students

    By Associated Press
    December 13,


    MEXICO CITY — Prosecutors in southern Mexico said Tuesday they found an AK-47 assault rifle, hand grenades and gasoline bombs at the scene of a protest where a violent clash between student demonstrators and police resulted in the death of two students.

    Alberto Lopez, the attorney general of the southern state of Guerrero, told a local radio station he believed “there were outside elements involved in the protest” who were not students at the rural teachers college where the protest originated.

    Indignados’ Protest in Mexico City
    Posted on Sep 12, 2011


    A protester holds a list of student demands at a demonstration in the Zocalo in Mexico City in the spring.


    After Mexican President Felipe Calderon’s fifth state of the nation speech last week, more than 50,000 people gathered in the Zocalo, Mexico City’s main square, to decry policies that have destroyed unions, privatized essential public industries, enriched a small elite and killed more than 50,000 people in the nation’s drug war.
