A hooded armed man is recorded by AFP cameraman Mehdi Lebouachera as he stands guard in downtown Tecoanapa, in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, on January 24, 2013. Hundreds of civilians armed with rifles, pistols and machetes decided to create their own security squad, on account of the presence of unidentified gangs committing robberies, kidnappings and murders. Guerrero, home to the Pacific resort town of Acapulco, has been one of the most hardly hit states by drug violence, which has left more than 70,000 people killed across the country since 2006.
