    Over the past five years, thousands of people in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez have been killed in violence linked to the country's devastating drug war.

    In what was once a quiet city, locals are increasingly drawn into the drug rings because of poverty and unemployment. 

    Local postman Juan Ramon Montes has watched his city's descent at close quarters.
