3 inmates die in riot at Mexican northern border prison

Mexican officials say three inmates have died after a fight between rival gangs at a prison in Ciudad Juarez, a city across the border from El Paso, Texas

MEXICO CITY — Three inmates were killed Thursday during a skirmish between rival gangs at a prison in Ciudad Juarez, a Mexican border city across from El Paso, Texas, officials said.

The prosecutor’s office in the border state of Chihuahua said on Thursday that authorities had called on the military and the National Guard to bring the fight under control at Number 3 prison.

The office said the dispute was between “rival gangs”, but did not identify which groups were involved.

Ciudad Juarez has seen years of fighting between gangs such as Artistas Asesinos, supported by the Sinaloa cartel, and the La Linea and Aztecas and Juarez gangs.
