Bogota worst city for female bus riders

Undercover police deployed as Bogota fights rampant harassment of women using public transport.

    Colombia's capital city Bogota is the most dangerous city for women using public transportation, according to a new survey by the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

    It reveals more than half the women there have been verbally or physically harassed while travelling on buses.

    The city has deployed undercover police to tackle the problem but many say genuine improvement will require cultural change.
