Mexican town fights drugs

A town in Chihuahua state is leading a potential new front in Mexico's war against organised crime.

    Residents of a small town in the Mexico-US border have decided to take the law into their own hands.

    Chihuahua has been torn apart by drug wars and with faith in the local law enforcement at an all time low, residents have decided they need to take action. They are fighting drug cartels with sheer determination.

    And they are registering some success.
