Mexico's Day of the Dead honours quake victims

    The Oaxacan town of Juchitan de Zaragoza in southern Mexico holds elaborate celebrations every year for the "Dia de los Muertos", or the "Day of the Dead".

    But this year, there's a sombre mood.

    Dozens of people were killed, and a third of the town was destroyed in an earthquake in September.

    The pain for survivors is still raw, and there's little money for the traditional celebrations, as Benita Martinez describes in her own words.
