Man will not leave Mexico airport


A Japanese man has been sleeping rough at Benito Juarez International Airport in Mexico for three months.

Hiroshi Nohara flew in from Tokyo in September with a tourist visa and a return ticket, but has never left Terminal 1.

Mr Nohara said: "There is no specific reason (why he chose Mexico). But if I had to come up with an answer then I would say I wanted to breathe the air of Mexico at the airport."

Wendy Urquhart reports.
