FILE – In this Feb. 9, 2014 file photo, Hipolito Mora, leader of a self-defense movement, wears a bullet proof vest as he stands at the entrance of Apatzingan, in the Michoacan state of Mexico. Self-defense groups in western Mexico are beginning to see internal divisions, amid mutual accusations between Mora and another emerging leader, Luis Antonio Torres, better known as “El Americano,” who has accused Mora of being involved in the murder of a member of their vigilantes during the weekend. Mora, meanwhile, rejects the accusations and says that “El Americano” has been infiltrated by former members of the “Caballeros Templarios†drug cartel. (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte, File)
