Albania's legacy of blood feuds endures

Many people in country's mountainous region trapped between law and code of honour, decades after democratic transition.

    Communist Albania was one of the most isolated countries in the world, having experienced longstanding anarchy and widespread family rivalries that claimed many lives.

But many people in the mountainous north are caught between the law and a fierce code of honour.
