MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s president said Tuesday he will not accept vigilantes arming themselves, and suggested they are serving local political bosses or gangs.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was responding to a drill held over the weekend by about 100 vigilantes in the southern state of Chiapas. The group, which calls itself “The Machete,” said it was formed to evict drug traffickers from Indigenous communities.
