|By foxnews.com- Greg Norman|
Sixteen inmates were killed at a Mexico prison this week after a dispute over a soccer game escalated into a full-scale riot, reports say.
The melee, which took place Tuesday afternoon at the Cieneguillas state prison in Central Mexico, lasted nearly three hours before security could get the situation under control. Those who died suffered gunshot or stab wounds, or were beaten with objects, according to Zacatecas state security secretary Ismael Camberos Hernández. Five other inmates were wounded.
Camberos told local press that in the aftermath, authorities confiscated four guns that they believe were introduced to the facility during prison visits earlier that day, including one that was still in an inmate’s possession.
