Mexican vigilante groups have paraded through a stronghold of the Knights Templar drug cartel in the troubled state of Michoacan. The vigilantes had driven into Apatzingan on Saturday, backed by armoured vehicles and troops. On Sunday, they drove round the town shouting slogans before convening at the city's main square.
