In this Nov. 5, 2013 photo, villagers dance as tensions ease after they gathered to block the road in response to army soldiers allegedly confiscating a few weapons from the community's self-defense group in the town of in Las Colonias, in the state of Michoacan, Mexico. The group says that soldiers confiscated a few of their weapons and that their leaders were negotiating with the army to get them back. Months after locals formed self-defense groups, they say they are free of the Knights Templar cartel in some municipalities of the Tierra Caliente, or “Hot Land.” (AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills) less
