Colombia: Escobar sticker book banned


A sticker album dedicated to the life of the notorious Colombian drugs baron Pablo Escobar has been banned after becoming a favourite among children.

Residents in poor areas of Medellin say the book and stickers are selling faster than food despite the ban.

Escobar is considered a hero by many in the city’s slums for giving out money.
