“Ten people were shot to death and another five were wounded in an attack at a bar in Mexico’s central state of Guanajuato over the weekend, officials said. The attack took place after 11 p.m. local time on Saturday at the El Estadio bar, when a group of armed men burst in and opened fire at customers and employees of the bar along a highway that connects the cities of Celaya and Queretaro. The current death toll is seven men and three women, officials said. Guanajuato, a prosperous industrial region and home to some of Mexico’s most popular tourist destinations, has become the country’s bloodiest state. … Two cartels, Santa Rosa de Lima and Jalisco Nueva Generation, are fighting deadly turf wars in the state, where they are known to conduct drug trafficking and fuel theft.” (03/14/23)
