Mexico drug war threatens capital

Drug-related violence claims bloodiest week and threatens to engulf capital.

    Mexico has seen its most violent week since Felipe Calderon, the country's president, took office nearly four years ago and declared war on the country's drugs gangs.

    Across the country hundreds have been killed as the war increases in intensity, with victims including police, recovering drug addicts, inmates and gang members.

    As Al Jazeera's Mariana Sanchez reports, the violence is getting dangerously close to Mexico's capital.
