Slain Mexico drug lord lives on in legend

Late cartel leader seen as local saviour but Mexican government considered him a ruthless criminal.

    When one of the founders of the La Familia drugs cartel was killed in 2010, the Mexican government hailed it as a major victory.

    Yet many locals say the cartel leader who protected them, Nazario Moreno, lives on in spirit.

    In Morelia, in the state of Michoacan, the legend of the so-called St Nazario continues. 

    Al Jazeera's Rachel Levin reports from Morelia, Mexico.
