'Life requires chivalry and humility': the Knights Templar are a Mexican crime group accused of murder, extortion and drug trafficking
THE Knights Templars drugs cartel is calling a short truce - but only to welcome Pope Benedict XVI to Mexico.
"They did put up signs announcing this," a Guanajuato state government source told AFP privately on Sunday.
The Knights Templars are holding off on all violent action, we are not killers, welcome to the Pope," the official said paraphrasing one of the signs put up in the town of Irapuato, Guanajuato state.
The signs were seen in at least seven towns statewide.
