MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Masked demonstrators threw Molotov cocktails and shot fireworks at police near Mexico City's airport on Thursday as thousands protested President Enrique Pena Nieto's handling of the apparent massacre of 43 trainee school teachers.

Police in riot gear faced down around 300 protesters near the airport a few hours before three major marches in Mexico City set off in support of the students, apparently murdered after their abduction by corrupt police on Sept. 26.
