A girl walks holding a toy gun as residents stop a group of soldiers to prevent them from disarming the community police on July 24, 2013 in the village of Xaltianguis, a rural zone in the southwestern State of Guerrero, Mexico. Since last December, hundreds of civilians armed with rifles, pistols and machetes created a vigilante force, stating that gangs were committing robberies, kidnappings and murders. Guerrero, home to the Pacific resort town of Acapulco, has been one of the hardest hit by Mexico's drug violence, which has left more than 70,000 people killed across the country since 2006.
