Hundreds of residents in Tijuana marched to protest violence against women on Saturday, after 25-year old Ingrid Escamilla was stabbed to death in Mexico City a week ago. Protesters held candles and signs demanding the government to take action against femicide, as they rallied in the River Zone area, just 4 miles away from the US border. The killing of Escamilla has sparked outrage and prompted several protests across the country, after the image of the woman's mutilated body appeared on the front pages of a number of media. An average of ten women are slain in Mexico every day, with the number reaching 3,825 victims in 2019.
