A follower of "Saint Death" takes part in a protest in Mexico City
A follower of "Saint Death", an unofficial cult that worships a scythe-wielding skeletal figure not recognized by the Catholic Church, takes part in a protest in Mexico City April 5, 2009, after authorities destroyed a shrine to the "saint" in the violent border town of Nuevo Laredo. Church officials and police say "Santa Muerte" is revered by drug traffickers and criminals who pray to the image for miracles and the cult is booming in popularity in neighborhoods, in the capital notorious for selling contraband and border cities wracked with drug violence. More than 6,300 people were killed in Mexico last year as violent drug cartels fight each other and the government.
