Deep anger over the apparent massacre of 43 trainee teachers has plunged Mexico`s Enrique Pena Nieto into his worst crisis as president, but with no credible opposition in sight, mass protests look unlikely to force him from power.
Grappling with outrage over violence and impunity after the apparent massacre of 43 trainee teachers, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Tuesday accused unspecified groups of seeking to destabilize his government.
Demonstrators set fire to the local legislature building on Wednesday in the capital of the southwestern state of Guerrero in protests over the apparent massacre of 43 students by corrupt police and thugs from drug gangs.
Mexicans furious at the presumed massacre of 43 students torched the ruling party`s Guerrero state headquarters and briefly took a police commander prisoner Tuesday as growing protests rocked President Enrique Pena Nieto`s government.
The disappearance of 43 students after being led away by police three weeks ago continues to baffle and anger the Mexican public, as well as the government of President Enrique Pena Nieto whose efforts to clear up the matter have been criticised for lack of results.
