Call centre set to tackle extortion in Mexico

One group in Mexico City sets up call centre to help victims deal with the issue.

    Mexico's government has cracked down on drug gangs, but people face a rising number of other crimes such as extortion and intimidation.

    Even though most of the extortion calls are fake, it has become a big concern for the people many of whom have to pay ransoms.

    One group in the capital, Mexico City, has set up a call centre to help victims deal with the issue.

    Al Jazeera's David Mercer reports from the capital.
