Mexico's Raramuri hit hard by drought

Indigenous group in northern Chihuahua State has lived without rain for more than a year.



    Rain has not fallen in some parts of rural northern Mexico for 15 months.

    Two and a half million people living there have no drinking water. Among those without are the Raramuri, an ancient indigenous group of an estimated 122,000 members.
