An Arsenal in the Juárez Jail

Further evidence of the sorry state of Mexican prisons:
In less than three days, during a second revision at the State Cereso in Ciudad Juárez, police found three AK-47 assault rifles, 12 pistols, three shotguns, four gas masks, 450 bullets and 180 knives. Monday of this week, in a previous search of the same facility, six guns and 91 knives were found, an arsenal used by inmates to murder their enemies in the prison, and dozens of cell phones to extort people on the outside.
