Angry protests in Mexico after woman's gruesome killing

BY , Feb 15, 2020 2:43 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

Angry demonstrations have broken out in Mexico City as hundreds of women rage against the gruesome slaying and mutilation of a young woman.

The case of Ingrid Escamilla has come to personify frustration over the rising incidence of gender-related killings, or femicides.

She was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend, and indignation grew after some media outlets published horrific photos of her skinned corpse.

Friday morning, dozens of protesters spray-painted slogans such as ``We won't be silenced'' on the National Palace.

Hours later hundreds marched on a media outlet that published the images.

At least one newspaper truck outside was partially set ablaze.
