‘Corrupt’ police in Mexico drug war

Mexican police have detained one their own commanders in the violence-plagued city of Ciudad Juarez following allegations of links to the country’s drug cartels. Officers also accused the federal commander of protecting criminals in the city, where more than 5000 federal police and soldiers have been deployed in an effort to replace local police considered too corrupt to be effective. But as Al Jazeera’s Mark Orchard reports, these federal forces are now facing the same charges. (Aug 09, 2010)
