Cartel violence leaves a trail of ghost towns in Mexico
Al Jazeera, 06 Jun 2021
Official statistics show that about 8 million Mexicans have had to abandon their homes as a result of the violence that has been afflicting the country for the last 15 years.
The state of Michoacan has been one of the worst-hit regions recently, as rival criminal gangs fight for territory and influence.
Trapped in the middle of that fight is a civilian population, more and more of whom are having to flee.
Al Jazeera’s John Holman reports from the Mexican state of Michoacan.
