Drug wars haunt Colombian city

Rising deadly violence in Medellin brings back memories of 1980s drug feuds.

The Colombian city of Medellin has seen a resurgence of deadly violence that has brought back memories of its notorious drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar.

Since the beginning of last year, more than a thousand people have been killed in confrontations between street gangs working for rival drug cartels.

Sadly, most of the victims fit the same profile – young men between the ages of 18 and 26.

From Medellin, Al Jazeera’s Teresa Bo has this report.
