Angry protesters rallying against the alleged killing of 43 Mexican students have clashed with riot police in Acapulco as authorities downplayed chances of ever identifying their remains.



Thousands of people rallied in front of the resort's international airport, with parents of the students leading the demonstration along with comrades from the 43 young men's teacher-training college in the southern state of Guerrero.



According to a public security official, a group of masked protesters clashed with riot police who had tried to block their way to the airport, injuring 11 officers.



After negotiations, the protesters were allowed to go through.



Many protesters were armed with bats, metal pipes and machetes in the latest demonstration over a case that has angered Mexican society and turned into the biggest crisis of President Enrique Pena Nieto's administration.
