Forced to Flee: Mexico’s Internally Displaced Population

Reporting by Natasha Pizzey. Filming/editing by Matthieu Cumin

“Mexico’s ongoing drug war is notorious for its tens of thousands of murders and disappearances. But there are many other victims we hear little about, those who are forced from their homes as they flee the violence. Research groups estimate that between 160,000 and 1.6 million Mexicans have been displaced by the insecurity. Our team went to Mexico’s western Guerrero state to meet some of them.” (text by France 24)
