Acapulco, Mexico - A police officer is carried away following violent clashes with protesters in the Pacific resort town, November 10. The country has seen escalating unrest, with protesters throwing stones, wielding machetes and firebombing riot police after 43 college students in Ayotzinapa, Mexico, disappeared in September following a demonstration for education reform. Gang suspects confessed to abducting the students and described a grisly massacre where they burned their bodies and dumped charcoaled remains in a river but skeptics have called the story a cover-up by a police force and government in bed with organized crime. slideshow
