Roman convicts driving rickshaws as part of rehab

The problems of congested roads and prisoner rehabilitation are being tackled at the same time in a project in Rome.

More than a dozen men, either current or former convicts, have become rickshaw drivers in two areas of the city.

The authorities say the men, who have convictions for robbery and other serious offences, have been carefully chosen and pose no threat to anyone.

Duncan Kennedy reports from Rome.
