Drug war uproots Mexico families

Raging drug war in the country's north forces hundreds of families to seek temporary relief in neighbouring towns.

    The raging drug war in the US-Mexico border region has forced hundreds of residents to seek refuge in neighbouring towns.

    The border town of Ciudad Mier is the latest flashpoint in a nationwide drug war that has pitted gangs against each other and government forces.

    Al Jazeera's Franc Contreras reports from Miguel Alaman, where many fleeing Mier residents have found refuge.
