    More than 32 years ago thousands of people lost their homes after a massive earthquake in Mexico City.

    Today, hundreds are still living in temporary camps and others have only recently been re-housed in permanent homes.

    In September last year, the list of those looking for a home grew even longer when another big quake struck Mexico City.

    Al Jazeera's David Mercer reports from Mexico City.
