Thousands of protesters took to the streets in Mexico on Friday to demand justice for 43 students feared to have been massacred by drug-gang hitmen working in cahoots with corrupt police.The protesters carried images of the missing male students, who authorities say were abducted by police and handed over to a drug cartel before being murdered and set alight -- a claim contested by the victims' families.Protests have rocked a number of Mexican cities this week, with the Guerrero state congress set ablaze on Tuesday in the escalating demonstrations.Some 100,000 people have died or gone missing since Calderon launched the offensive against drug gangs eight years ago.
