Hipolito Mora, a 58-year-old farmer turned vigilante leader, talks to Reuters at a small ranch in La Ruana January 15, 2014. The vigilante leader in a restive part of rural western Mexico on Wednesday urged the government to kill the heads of a brutal drug cartel that has long held sway over the region rather than arrest them, and rejected an order to disarm. Vigilantes have been battling the Knights Templar cartel in the western state of Michoacan for almost a year, creating a major security problem for President Enrique Pena Nieto.
