A week in Ciudad Juarez


Latin America Correspondent Guillermo Galdos spent a week in the city of Ciudad Juarez, one of the key routes for drugs and people into the United States and where the war’s frontlines are becoming even more blurred.

Last year was the bloodiest in Mexico’s recent history. More than 27,000 people were killed, as the drug war claimed ever more victims.

Now even more of those who report on the killings are also paying the price. More than 40 journalists have now been killed in Mexico in the last six years, including 12 last year alone.
