Mexico Inauguration
Two protestors team up to hurl a fire bottle over a steel security barrier in front of the National Congress, where Mexico's new president Enrique Pena Nieto took the oath of office, in Mexico City, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012. Protests against the new president began early Saturday morning with violent confrontations in the streets and protest speeches from opposition parties inside the congress. Protestors continued through the afternoon, vandalizing downtown businesses, smashing storefront glass windows and setting office furniture ablaze. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)
