Thousands took to the streets on the anniversary of Mexico's 1910 revolution not in celebration, but instead to protest how the country has handled the disappearance of 43 students earlier this year in September.
The students are believed to have been murdered after being kidnapped by police and gang members working under a corrupt mayor's orders in southern Mexico.
According to NBC, three marches earlier in the day had been peaceful. They later became more violent, including protestors burning an effigy of Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto.
