Gunmen Free 29 Inmates From Mexico Jail

Gunmen dressed in military fatigues burst into a jail in western Mexico on Monday and freed 29 inmates, some of whom were linked to one of Mexico’s most violent drug cartels, the police said. “It was very well planned,” said Héctor Elías of the Michoacán State Police. “From start to finish, it lasted between five and seven minutes.” One person was killed in the breakout, at the Apatzingán prison, about 200 miles west of Mexico City, officials said.
