Villagers kidnap drug lord's mother in Mexico

Drug trafficking is one thing, but kidnapping a drug-lord's mother is a risk very few people are willing to take.

But that's exactly what a few vigilantes in the Mexican village of Totolapan have done.

The town has been controlled by a drug gang for years.

This week the townspeople took action and somehow managed to abduct the mother of drug gang's boss.

They're now demanding a prisoner exchange for the release of their loved-ones.
