Bieber fans throng Mexico plaza

Thousands of young girls skipping school have streamed into Mexico City's historic main plaza, hoping to get the best spots for a free concert by Justin Bieber that is expected to draw 200,000 people.

The grey and reddish stones of the plaza were covered in a sea of purple as the mainly 10 to 14-year-old crowd paid homage to what is reported to be Bieber's favourite colour.

Under a hot sun, girls trundled through security checkpoints with hats and umbrellas, staking claim to some of the roughly 80,000 spots allocated in the plaza itself. Another 120,000 or more are expected to watch on giant screens erected on nearby streets.

Fernanda Gutierrez Aparicio, 13, said she had spent a week camping out with her mother on a nearby street in hopes of being among the first to enter. She said they returned home only to bathe and look after Fernanda's 15-year-old sister, who recently underwent an operation.

But her mother, Adriana Martinez, 41, gave up on trying to get her daughter into the front rows because of the press of other fans.

"I was really disappointed. When we got up front, people were crushing you, not letting you breathe," Martinez said. Even long hours before the concert, "People were jostling each other and it got to the point that you couldn't move."

The two-hour concert was to open with Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen and Mexican rockers 3BallMTY.

Authorities said they will have more than 5,000 police on hand, partly to prevent the sort of crush that injured 40 Bieber fans at a free concert in Oslo, Norway, in late May.
