Protest in Nuevo Laredo

It's been a problem many in Nuevo Laredo have had to face for years since Mexico's government declared war on drug gangs: People going missing.

Families protested members of the Mexican military on Tuesday, blaming them for the disappearances of their loved ones.

They held signs demanding an end to violence and called upon Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto for answers as to what happened to them. They also blurred the lines between the Mexican military and the drug gangs they've been fighting, accusing soldiers stationed in their city of committing murders as well.

This is not the first protest of its kind. These same people made a similar demonstration a few weeks ago on the Mexican side of International bridge number one. They say they will continue to do so until they get the answers they demand.
