Mexico: Living With Hitmen

Ciudad Juarez in Mexico is a war zone. More than 3,000 people were murdered there last year.

While two rival drug gangs - the Juarez and Sinaloa cartels - fight to dominate the lucrative supply routes to the US, whole areas of the city have been abandoned; 400,000 people out of a population of 1.5m have fled.

Correspondent Evan Williams and director Alex Nott shadow El Diario's crime reporter Luz Sosa. She knows the risk she's taking reporting the cartels' crimes: 50 journalists have been murdered in Juarez in the last four years, including her immediate predecessor at the paper. Luz is also a single mother with two children. "My daughter said she didn't want to be an orphan," says Luz. "I'm preparing that path for them."
