53 of Mexico’s most notorious drug related criminals have escaped from prison. CCTV footage taken on Saturday shows that the prison guards allowed the escape!
The prison director and 44 prison guards accused of involvement are to be jailed.
The escaping prisoners also stole guns from the jail on their way out. At first it was thought that the guards had been overpowered but security camera footage shows the guards stepping aside so that the prisoners could escape freely.
