7 policemen killed in prison riot in Mexico
Mexican authorities in eastern the country said seven police officers have died while trying to quell a prison riot, ABC news reported on Sunday. 

The Veracruz state government said the officers entered the La Toma prison in the mountain town of Amatlan de los Reyes to restore order and move some dangerous inmates.

It said inmates apparently set fire to some mattresses, and the smoke may have killed the officers. Investigators were trying to confirm the cause of death.

The statement doesn't describe how the riot began.
