A "tween" squatter encampment has sprung up in Mexico City's chaotic centre as "Beliebers" seek to be closest to the stage when teenage superstar Justin Bieber holds a free concert.
Dozens of mostly girls aged 10 to 14 travelled for hundreds of miles to camp along a street near the Zocalo, the capital's vast central plaza, yesterday, where tens of thousands of unrelated political demonstrators gathered and crews built the concert stage.
Many of the young campers, dressed in Bieber's favourite colour purple and bopping to his music on headphones, were chaperoned by parents, some of whom took time off work to help their children miss school and be part of an audience expected to top 200,000.
