At least six prisoners died as a result of violent clashes between two rival cartels at the prison.

Morelos state police and soldiers from the Mexican military and National Military Police were sent to regain control of the prison.

Interior Secretary Pablo Ojeda Cardenas told reporters that there were no weapons used by prisoners in the attack.
