This morning there was a quarrel between 10 people deprived of their liberty, housed in module 5 of the Huitzilzingo prison in Chalco, reported the Secretary of Security (SS) of the State of Mexico.
In a statement, however, the Prison Centre operated as normal.

The unit indicated that the Undersecretariat for Prison Control applied the protocols established for these cases, so it managed to restore order to the site, without further consequences.
After the scuffle, four inmates were transferred to a hospital in the area to be assessed by a doctor, derived from the blows they suffered during the stoneware; none of them report serious injury.
