Controversial bridge inaugurated in Mexico

Fears world's tallest cable-suspension bridge, spanning the Sierra Madre, will support illegal activity.

    Mexico's president has inaugurated the tallest cable-suspension bridge in the world, standing at 403m high.

    But not everyone thinks the Baluarte bridge, spanning the Sierra Madre mountain range, is a good idea.

    Some say that it will become a superhighway for drug trafficking and illegal activity.
