Protesters have been demanding that authorities be held accountable over the death of Giovanni Lopez, who died in police custody in the western state of Jalisco last month.

The circumstances are unclear, but footage on social media shows a young man, identified as Lopez, being detained by police in early May.

Bystanders can be heard saying he was arrested for not using a face mask to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Protests in Jalisco’s capital, Guadalajara, flared up again, though on a smaller scale.

On Thursday, protesters set a police officer on fire and vandalized buildings and police cars.

Dressed in black and with faces covered, protesters marched along one of central Mexico City’s main avenues, setting fire to cars and smashing up the fronts of a number of businesses, including a local branch of U.S. bank Citigroup Inc.

Cities in the United States and elsewhere have been swept by protests in support of George Floyd, a black Minneapolis man who died last month after a white police officer kept a knee pressed to his neck.

Some of the protests have been marred by violence and vandalism.

Surprising Facts You May Not Know About Tequila

5 facts you probably didn't know about tequila. Tequila is an alcohol derived from the blue agave plant. The plant features a core called piña, which closely resembles a pineapple. Once the piña is harvested, it is brought to a distillery to be roasted to unleash its juices. Once those juices are released, they are fermented, distilled and aged before being bottled. In order to be labeled tequila, the production of the liquor has to occur in the state of Jalisco or in some neighboring states.
