Mexico: Federal forces to intervene in Mexico state

In the Michoacan state, the presence of drug gangs has prompted the creation of a local defence group. They've taken matters into their own hands and driven out members of a drug gang known as the Knights Templar. The vigilantes are now guarding the entrance to the town of Nueva Italia, braced for a possible counter-attack. Al Jazeera's Rachel Levin reports from Mexico City.
