Mexican teens shocking racial attack

- Ananya Saha

A Mexican school boy was set on fire and badly burned in his classroom. He was speaking an

indigenous language in a country struggling to end racial discrimination.

Two classmates are accused that they poured alcohol on Juan Zamorano's seat at a high school in

the central state of Queretaro in June.

When the 14-year-old realized his pants were wet and stood up, one of them set Zamorano on fire,

according to his family.
