Mexico City - Hundreds of Mexicans marched on Friday to demand more action to clarify the fate of over 40,000 people who remain missing in the country.
"We want them alive," protesters chanted in Mexico City, where they had gathered to mark the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances.
In front of the government building, an artistic installation featured the number 40,000, white and red flowers, pictures of those missing and black figures on which people could write messages.
Most of the victims had disappeared since 2006.
The under-secretary for human rights, Alejandro Encinas, said the search for them is "the priority" of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's government. Lopez Obrador took office on December 1.
