Members of Parliament in Mexico have unanimously approved a bill which will provide compensation to the victims of organised crime.

The law will create a national body to record such crimes as kidnapping and forced disappearances.

It will also oversee legal, medical and financial support to crime victims.

The law will also apply to victims of human rights abuses carried out by the security forces.
