11 people, including two children, have been killed at a birthday party in Mexico.

Masked men burst into the event being held in a tent outside the hosts home in the city of Tizayuca in central Hidalgo state.

Police found four children alive, but the other victims had been stabbed to death.

Mexico has recently seen a surge in violence linked to disputes between drug cartels.

That violence has extended to areas that were once considered relatively calm, including Hidalgo, which is situated just north of the capital, Mexico City.

In May alone, over 2,000 killings were recorded across the country – approximately 70 a day and the most since the country began keeping track 20 years ago.
