Protesters storm town hall in Mexico


Hundreds of protesters have tried to storm a public building outside Mexico City, where a group of suspected kidnappers was being held.

They wanted the men to be handed over so they could mete out their own justice.

Police responded by firing tear gas into the crowd and removing the suspects from the building.

Steve Gibbs reports.
