Mexico vigilantes claim victory over cartels

Security forces claim to liberate a city from the powerful Knights Templar Cartel.

    Federal police in western Mexico have seized rocket launchers and guns in a city that vigilantes and security forces claimed to have liberated from the powerful Knights Templar Cartel.

    The government is trying to integrate thousands of vigilantes across Michoacan into a rural police force but so far only 900 have registered their arms and signed up.

    Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from Apatzingan, Michoacan.
