Mexico: Vigilantes claim victory over cartels

Federal police in western Mexico have seized rocket launchers and guns in a city that vigilantes and security forces claimed to have liberated from the powerful Knights Templar Cartel. The government is trying to integrate thousands of vigilantes across Michoacan into a rural police force but so far only 900 have registered their arms and signed up. Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from Apatzingan, Michoacan.
