Mexico floods: Looters take advantage

Severe flooding and the expectation of further heavy storm weather to come has led to looting in some Mexican cities, including Acapulco.

While some of those involved say they are getting essential supplies, other people are scavenging high-value goods while the authorities look on.

Agency footage shows looters streaming out of a retail park in the exclusive Diamante district with food, televisions and even fridges.
