Acapulco – During a prison war in the Mexican city of Acapulco, at least 28 inmates have been killed. Most victims were killed at the kitchen of the maximum security wing of the prison. A government official reported that among the victims there were four men who were beheaded.
Several bodies were found in the prisons visitor’s room.
Special, heavily armed groups were called in to end the fighting. After everything calmed down, one of the prison staff read the names of the 28 victims. This led to a lot of emotion from the relatives, mainly women who had waited behind the prison walls for hours to get more information.

A few months ago footage of a prisoner hosting a party in the Puente Grande prison got leaked complete with alcohol, music and not to forget no prison guards. The situations are not improving, that’s what Mexican politicians had to say.
