Chile tsunami town cries neglect

Constitucion locals say federal government paying more attention to other cities.

    Half of the deaths counted in Chile's earthquake so far have occurred in Constitucion, where a tsunami devastated the coastal area following the 8.8-magnitude quake.

    But locals say the federal government is paying more attention to other cities and many are still wondering if more could have been done to save lives.

    Constitucion residents rehearse how to respond to tsunamis and that is why many knew to run once the earth stopped shaking. Even so, many were still taken by the sea.

    Al Jazeera's Teresa Bo talks to some of the residents in the town, where search and rescue operations continue.
