Men are seen through the bullet-riddled windshield of their truck at a military checkpoint in the municipality of Ciudad Vicente Guerrero, about 70 km (43 miles) away from the city of Durango, northern Mexico, May 19, 2009. Rural Mexican towns are on the front line in the drug war with little army protection, under siege from rival cartels who want control of countryside outposts along smuggling corridors. A fight for control of the mountainous state of Durango has killed at least 235 people this year, a jump in violence that poses a new challenge to President Felipe Calderon, who is struggling to contain bloodshed across Mexico.
