Caption

University students, right, in underwear are held at gunpoint by soldiers inside an apartment building in Tlatelolco, Mexico City. A Mexican magazine published photos, including the one shown, showing that paramilitary forces hired to provide security during the 1968 Olympic games apparently participated in a massacre of student protesters, something past Mexican governments have denied.
