Gunmen have shot dead ten people in a pool hall in the state of Guanajuato in Mexico, the regional prosecutor’s office announced.

The governor of the state, Diego Sinhue Rodriguez, condemns the act, which he calls a “cowardly attack” and promises to restore order.

Guanajuato has become one of Mexico’s most violent states as a result of a bloody conflict between two rival cartels.
