A church in the Mexican city of Monterrey has set up extreme security measures to protect worshippers, bricking up its windows and introducing a traffic light system to warn churchgoers if a crime is taking place nearby.
During mass, a green light is activated above a side door of the St. Teresa of Avila church to indicate that there is no sign of danger outside.
When the amber light is lit, it indicates caution, while the red light represents danger from criminal activity, such as a shooting, taking place near the church.
A concrete wall has also been constructed in front of the main facade of the church.
