Lynching, vigilante attacks on the rise in Mexico

In Mexico, attacks by vigilante groups against suspected criminals are on the rise.

    Record levels of violence in Mexico and people's frustration with the inability of police to tackle it are driving a surge in vigilante justice.

    Angry mobs are behind a growing number of lynchings and have even been accused of burning alleged criminals alive.

    Rights groups say at least 121 people have been killed by angry mobs since the start of 2015.
