According to local sources, a demonstration on 9 November in Cancún degenerated into clashes with the security forces.
The protesters denounced violence against women in the state of Quintana Roo, after the discovery the same day in Cancun of a woman’s body following her abduction 2 days earlier.
The protesters attempted to break in the Cancun town hall before being dispersed by gunfire attributed to the security forces. No death toll was communicated but local journalists reported several injuries.
Further mobilisation in the city cannot be ruled out in the coming days.
