Mexico election: A grieving widow defies criminal gangs

More than 130 candidates have been killed in Mexico during a deadly election campaign leading up to general and presidential elections on Sunday.

Carmen's husband was one of the victims, shot dead six weeks ago in broad daylight after a rally.

Now the grieving widow is running for office herself.

Reporting by Clive Myrie, filmed by Darren Conway for BBC News at Ten, edited by Franz Strasser.
