Mexico's government has fast-tracked a law to compensate victims of the country's war on drugs.

Congress approved the bill on Tuesday, just a week after it was passed by the Senate,

Victims of criminal violence will be eligible for support payments of up to $73,000.

About 60,000 people have been killed during the crackdown on drugs in the past six years.

Al Jazeera's Franc Contreras reports from Mexico City.
