Guatemalan volcano's human chain against domestic violence

Every year in Guatemala hundreds of women suffer abuse at the hands of their husbands in what is a huge pattern of domestic violence.

According to government figures more than 600 women were murdered in the small Central American country last year.

To draw attention to the problem, thousands of people have formed a human chain up one of Guatemala's volcanoes.
