Mexico dismantles “luxury cells” in Topo Chico jail

BBC – Police have retaken control of the Topo Chico jail following last week’s riot in which 49 inmates were killed. Officials said officers had “put an end to the self-government imposed by criminal leaders in collusion with some prison authorities”. They also dismantled “luxury cells” containing mini-bars, aquariums and saunas in the prison in Monterrey. The prison warden and superintendent have been arrested.
