Documentary: "Border Echoes" reveals systematic murders of women in Juarez, Mexico

Mexican officials and others attend Dec. 10 ceremony at the site where bodies of 8 young women's bodies were found in November 2001. A memorial in honor of the "cotton field" victims will be constructed there. A year ago, the InterAmerican Court for Human Rights instructed the Mexican government to erect such a monument and to reinvestigate the 2001 case.The tribunal issued these and other instructions related to the notorious femicides. So far, the only one in progress is the monument. Photo courtesyof El Mexicano.
