Nine people were killed during a prison gunfight in Mexico’s violent Guerrero state after a gang dressed as police officers entered the prison on Friday.

Six gunmen wearing police uniforms were allowed into the prison by unsuspecting guards who thought the men were escorting a prisoner.

A prison guard and one of the alleged gunmen remain hospitalised with gunshot wounds.
