Drug running tanks seized by Mexican authorities

The Mexican army has seized a number of home-made tanks that have been built by Mexico's drug cartels and used to protect trafficking routes into the US.

The steel-coated, air-conditioned vehicles, were recovered during a raid on a metal-working shop in the north-east of the country.

Julian Miglierini reports.
