Mexico vigilantes seize drug cartel bastion

“Armed vigilantes have seized a drug cartel bastion in western Mexico, sparking a shootout between the two groups, an official said.

Members of so-called self-defence groups entered the town of Nueva Italia, Michoacan on a campaign they say is designed to liberate towns from the control of the Knights Templar cartel. Opponents and critics say the vigilantes are backed by a rival cartel, something the groups deny.”
