By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Friday, hundreds of Mexican soldiers were deployed to the border city of Juarez following shootouts between 2 rival cartels at a prison, Reuters said.
The face-off on Thursday afternoon caused a riot and shooting that killed 11 people, most of them civilians.
Members of the infamous Sinaloa Cartel and Los Mexicles clashed in a prison, Mexican authorities stated.
Thereafter, a riot broke out killing 2 and 4 injured, and another 16 were injured in the fighting, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said.
The Mexicans then rampaged into the city killing 9 civilians, among them 4 employees of a radio station.
Stores were shot at and set on fire, authorities noted.
About 300 soldiers arrived in the town on Friday with more scheduled to arrive this weekend.
