News at Eleven: Led by a renowned Mexican poet,

a four-mile march through Chicago's West Side on Monday night called for an end to the U.S. war on drugs. Javier Sicilia, whose 24-year-old son was killed last year by Mexican drug traffickers in Cuernavaca, blames the drug war for tens of thousands of violent deaths in that country.

Sicilia says the war has been devastating north of the border too.
