Canadian activists call for government inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women.
The killing of an indigenous woman in Canada has reignited demands for investigation into hundreds of missing or murdered First Nations women. Hundreds gathered Wednesday for a vigil outside the Canadian Parliament to mourn 26-year-old Loretta Saunders, a student researching violence against First Nations women.
Saunders was found dead on the side of a New Brunswick highway on February 27, two weeks after she was last seen. Police have charged two individuals with first degree murder.
