Colombian district kicks out drug gangs

Residents in one of the country's most violent cities create urban humanitarian zone after ousting cartels.

    Buenaventura is one of Colombia's poorest and most violent cities. Gangs control many of its neighbourhoods, mostly through torture and kidnappings.

    But when a woman was butchered in broad daylight, residents in the Puente Nayero district decided the horror had to stop.

    Al Jazeera's Alessandro Rampietti reports from Buenaventura.
