The Mexican mayor refusing to give in to violence

Carmen Ortiz became mayor of a small town in Mexico three years ago, after her husband was assassinated while running as a candidate.

She’s now standing for a second term, even though 12 of her staff have been murdered or are missing.

There’s been a new wave of targeted killings ahead of legislative elections on 6 June.
