Residents of Tecoanapa, in the Mexican southern state of Guerrero, forming their own vigilante police forces, stand guard at a checkpoint in the main access to the nearby village of Pericon on January 18, 2013. Hundreds of civilians armed with rifles, pistols and machetes decided to provide security for the communities of Tecoanapa and Ayutla de los Libre in the state of Guerrero, saying gangs were committing robberies, kidnappings and murder. The vigilante force has put up checkpoints on roads and conducts night watches in the towns. Guerrero, home to the Pacific resort town of Acapulco, has been one of the states hardest hit by Mexico's drug violence, which has left more than 70,000 people killed across the country since 2006.
