NOCHIXTLAN, Mexico — A small town in southern Mexico buried three of its own Tuesday, two days after a clash between police and protesters left eight dead.
Residents in the town of Nochixtlan in Oaxaca state accused police of opening fire during a confrontation involving protesters and striking radical teachers, killing several people including 19-year-old Jesus Cadena Sanchez.
A middle child, Cadena Sanchez was the second of three burials, as hundreds marched with his casket to a rocky hilltop cemetery under a steady rain.
After his burial, Cadena’s mother, Patricia Sanchez Meza, recalled her last conversation with him in what must have been minutes before a bullet ripped through his lower abdomen on Sunday.
