A police officer was set on fire during a protest against police brutality in Mexico. Shocking footage captures the moment a protester sprays the officer's back with fuel which was then set alight.

The policeman escaped with minor injuries after other officers rushed in to douse the flames.

People in the Mexican state of Jaliso had taken to the street to protest the death of a young man in police custody. Giovanni Lopez was reportedly arrested and beaten to death for not wearing a face mask in public, in accordance with Mexico's coronavirus regulations.

Hundreds took part in a march through the town of Ixtlahuacan de los Membrillos.
