Protesters enraged over the handling of 43 missing students set fire to the doors of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's ceremonial palace in Mexico City Saturday evening. They're denouncing the suspected massacre of the student teachers, who were abducted and purportedly murdered by corrupt police in the southwestern Guerrero state. Police tried to put out the fires and erected enforced fencing to keep protesters away from the palace. At least two people were injured during the protest, local media reported. The president, who lives across town, was not in the palace.
