Horrific pictures from inside Mexican prison riots show severed heads and bloodied bodies on the ground while guards are held hostage as rival cartels clash for a second day

Horrific pictures from inside Mexican prison riots show severed heads and bloodied bodies on the ground while guards are held hostage as rival cartels clash for a second day
At least six inmates died during a prison riot between rival cartels in Mexico on Wednesday, including one of the former leaders of a gang blamed for the 2014 disappearance of 42 student teachers.
Members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel and Los Rojos clashed for a second consecutive day after one prisoner was killed and two others were injured at jail in Xochitepec, a city in the state of Morelos.
Wednesday's riot at the Atlacholoaya Social Reintegration Center left another two inmates injured. They were taken by helicopter to a nearby hospital.
Gruesome pictures surface on social media of bloodied prisoners strewn on a hallway floor. Another terrifying photo showed a severed head lying on the ground next to a pair of bodies.  
Mexican outlets published images of prison guards lying on the ground, while another picture showed half a dozen correction officers being forced to kneel as they were surrounded by inmates wielding sticks.

Morelos state police and soldiers from the Mexican army and National Guard militarized police were sent in to regain control of the prison.

Interior Secretary Pablo Ojeda Cardenas told reporters that no guns were used by the inmates in the attack. 
'Some 350 security personnel were deployed for the implementation of the national security protocols, and full and total control (of the prison) was regained,' Morelos authorities said in a statement.

Raymundo Isidro, the former Morelos state leader of criminal gang Guerreros Unidos leader and a lieutenant of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, who was arrested in May, was among those who were killed, the statement added.
In 2014, Guerreros Unidos mistook 43 student teachers in the southwestern city of Iguala in the state of Guerrero for members of a rival outfit, killed them, incinerated their bodies in a nearby garbage dump and tipped their remains into a river.
The abduction and apparent massacre of the youths, widely believed to have been committed by corrupt police working with the violent drug gang on the night of September 26, 2014, drew international outrage and condemnation of the administration of former President Enrique Peña Nieto.
Since Isidro led Guerreros Unidos in Morelos, he is not thought to have participated in the abduction or massacre of the student teachers. 
Spiraling violence, including homicides on track to hit a new record in 2019, is one of the most pressing issues facing the administration of President President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
