Police and activists have clashed in Mexico City at a march to mark International Women’s Day.

Officers forced back protesters with tear gas and riot shields in the capital’s main square, the Zócalo.

Protesters were calling for the government to address the country’s poor record on the murder of women, often referred to as femicide, and gender-based violence.
