Soldiers wait as residents of Tecoanapa block the road that connects their town with Tierra Colorada, Ayutla, in Guerrero State, Mexico, on August 6, 2013 to prevent more than 100 soldiers from passing through, after the military seized large-caliber weapons from members of the community self-policing groups. In April, residents began taking up arms because they were fed up of cartels’ murders, threats and kidnappings. AFP PHOTO/Pedro Pardo
