Mexico violence scares away tourists

Chihuahua state Copper Canyon's proximity to drug-growing heartland prompts US travel warning.

    Northern Mexico's Copper Canyon is considered one of the world's most spectacular landscapes.

    But the site is also located in the middle of Mexico's drug-growing heartland, so it is struggling to attract tourists.

    Drug-related violence in Chihuahua state, home to the canyon, has prompted the US to issue a travel warning that has scared away many potential visitors.

    Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from the canyon in Chihuahua.
