By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Culprits reportedly threw an explosive device inside of a police station in Chiapas today as the search continues for 16 police employees that were kidnapped at gunpoint.

According to the Associated Press, the violence stems from turf wars between rival cartels and the control of drug and immigrant trafficking.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said that the kidnappings were part of a battle between two gangs “nowadays that is the most common thing … that the groups clash.”

The Mexican President said the men who were kidnapped worked at a local prison and are formally employed by the state.

Violence has escalated in Mexico especially near border states amidst disputes between the Sinaloa cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel.
