Nineteen Killed in Tijuana Prison Riot

Diario San Diego, Posted: Sep 18, 2008

TIJUANA Nineteen inmates were found dead in Tijuana's La Mesa Prison Thursday in the second riot that has broken out since last Sunday, reports Spanish-language newspaper Diario San Diego. Baja California Attorney General Rommel Moreno Manjarrez told Diario San Diego that the number of deaths in La Mesa in the last 72 hours has come to 23. The news report explains that the prisoners were rioting to protest their deprivation of food and water, since Sunday, and three inmates have died of starvation and dehydration. Daniel de la Rosa, Secretary of State for Public Security, asserted that the situation is under control. De la Rosa initially denied that there were any casualties in the riot, Diario La Prensa reports. He said that several of the inmates involved in the riot will be transported to other prisons and that La Mesa Prison officials are now under investigation. La Mesa Prison is located just past the San Diego, Calif. border and houses approximately 8,000 prisoners. View photos of riot at diariosandiego.com.
