The CETEG members blocked the access to the Attorney General's Office in Chilpancingo as part of a protest over the 43 missing trainee teachers. Embattled Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto called on Mexico's states on Friday to swiftly adopt steps to modernise the justice system as he tries to defuse mass protests over the apparent massacre of 43 trainee teachers. Since the students were abducted by police and handed over to a local drug gang in the southwestern city of Iguala on September 26, a wave of discontent has hit the government, spurring calls at protests and on social media for Pena Nieto to step down. The words in black read, "We want life" and "Ayotzinapa lives".

Australia is confronting what authorities say is a growing threat from homegrown Islamist radicals and fears a new danger is about to rumble over the horizon - would-be militants hooking up with biker gangs. The gangs have since been transformed by an influx of members of Middle Eastern origin, some of whom do not even ride motorcycles. Biker gangs now have strong family and cultural ties to the very communities police worry are harbouring potential radicals. Picture taken November 9, 2014.
