Thousands of university students from Mexico City's acclaimed UNAM university marched on the capital on Thursday to demand greater security after a recent outbreak of violence on campus. Thursday's march came on the 50th anniversary of the 1968 student massacre when soldiers fired on protesting university students, killing hundreds.
A recent spate of violence has now rocked university students in the country. Earlier this month, a group of thugs entered UNAM campus grounds and attacked students. In the throes of a drug war, Mexican students have also been touched by violence across the country.
