Protests in Mexico City trigger suspension of 6 policemen for alleged rape


    Following a protest by some 300 people, Mexico City has suspended six police officers as part of investigations into the alleged rape of two teen girls earlier this month.

    Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum announced the decision a day after the demonstrators marched in the city demanding justice.

    The protesters, mostly female, chanted “they don’t protect us, they rape us” at officers.

    The cases are the latest incidents to trigger outrage over violence against women and girls in the country.
