At least 14 dead in riots in Mexican prison, 24 inmates escape
At least 10 guards and four inmates were killed in an attack at a prison in northern Mexico.
24 prisoners escaped from a prison in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, across the border from El Paso, Texas, during riots that claimed at least 14 lives, according to media reports.
The incident reportedly took place on Sunday when an armed group attacked the prison to free some of its inmates, according to the Mexican newspaper Milenio.
The report added that as many as 10 security guards and 4 prisoners have been killed, and 24 people have managed to escape.
Prosecutors initiated an investigation.
Last year, in August, a riot inside the same state prison spread to Juarez's streets in violence, leaving 11 people dead.
Two inmates were killed inside the prison and then alleged gang members started shooting up the town, killing four employees of a radio station who were doing a promotion at a restaurant.
