CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico A vicious fight among inmates armed with makeshift knives, clubs and even stones left 31 people dead in a prison in a drug cartel-plagued state in northern Mexico, authorities said.
Another 13 prisoners were wounded in the brawl in the penitentiary in the Gulf Coast city of Altamira, Tamaulipas state's Public Safety Department said in a statement.
The fight started when a group of inmates burst into a section of the prison they were banned from and attacked the prisoners housed there, the department said.
