13 dead in prison riot in Mexico


At least 13 inmates have died in a prison riot in northern Mexico that authorities ended with lethal force, a state security official has said.

Spokesman Aldo Fasci said the riot occurred at the state prison in Cadereyta and the death toll could climb because eight people were in a critical condition.

The battle began overnight in the prison, just outside the city of Monterrey. All afternoon, desperate families battled authorities outside the prison gates, demanding information about their relatives inside as black smoke poured from several points inside the facility.
