A 60-year-old Mexican man taking a cross-country walk with a football placed on his head to call for peace in the country has completed the first 1,200-mile leg of his journey. UPI reports:
Juan Marquez Nieto, 60, arrived Sunday in Mexico City, 57 days after starting his walk across Mexico to promote peace as part of the Uniting Wishes for Peace movement.
Nieto, who balances a soccer ball on his head while he walks, said he plans to head north for the second leg of his tour.
Uniting Wishes for Peace organized a march in November from the southern state of Guerrero to Mexico City to demand answers from the government regarding the disappearances of 43 students.
An accused gang-affiliated hitman is currently in custody and police suspect he killed the students and burned their bodies.
