Housewives take top chief police jobs in Mexican town

Two housewives with no experience of policing have been appointed to lead the fight against druglords in a Mexican village near the US border.

No male candidates had applied for the job of police chief out of fear and the women face a tough challenge imposing order in an area that has been blighted by a wave of drug-related violence.

Jack Izzard reports.
