A journalist for the Mexican newspaper, el Diario, was shot last week. This is the second journalist from the paper to be murdered in two years. The editors have just published an open letter to various drug cartels. The World's William Troop reports.
Jesus Ochoa, 75, was born in El Paso, Texas, where he has lived nearly all his life. As a young boy, he recalls heading just a few miles south to Juarez, Mexico. But today, Juarez is a very different place than the one Ochoa reminisces about.
