MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – At least 13 people were killed as a result of a riot in a prison in the city of Cadereyta Jimenez located in the northeastern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon, a representative of the state's security service Aldo Fasci said.
He said that eight more prisoners remained in a serious condition and, therefore, the death toll may increase. One security officer was also injured in the incident.
The riot is said to have been caused by conflicts between members of various criminal groups in the prison. According to Fasci, the situation in the jail is now under control.
