19 people are killed in Mexico.
In Mexico today 19 people were killed in an armed attack on a group that had secretly organized the turkey fight.
The attack killed 16 men and three women, and injured many more. The incident took place near the city of Zinapecuaro in the state of Michoacan in western Mexico.
Mexican police officials have announced that the area is mainly controlled by drug cartels and various gangs fighting for territory.
Michoakan is the “hotspot” of years of conflict between local cartels and Jalisco cartels- from the neighbor Jalisco – who use drones to drop bombs and have self-propelled armored vehicles during fighting.
Turkey warfare is why it is illegal in many regions, it is still popular and a means of “entertainment” in some parts of Mexico – but they are usually organized in secret.
