One state in Mexico has classified the murders of more than 90 women this year as acts of femicide.

That's the intentional killing of girls and women simply because they are females.

Mexico ranks among the most dangerous countries in the world for women, where organised crime and human trafficking are said to play a big role in the death rate.

Al Jazeera’s Manuel Rapalo reports from Puebla, Mexico.
