Thousands of women march in protest against violence in Mexico City

Thousands of women marched through the Mexican capital and scuffled with police on Thursday (November 25) demanding an end to femicide and other gender-based violence in the Latin American country. Tensions flared when a small number of hammer-wielding protesters tried to grab shields from police officers, who repelled them with smoke bombs. Around 10 women are killed every day in Mexico and activists accuse the government of not doing enough to tackle the problem. More than 10,700 women have been murdered in Mexico since 2019, according to official figures.
