29 Escape from Prison in Mexico, 13 Recaptured

On Wednesday, 29 suspected drug cartel members used a 120-foot tunnel to escape from a state prison in the northern Mexico border state of Tamaulipas.

One of the inmates, who escaped close to midnight, shot to death a passing motorist in an apparent carjacking in the state capital, Ciudad Victoria.

The Tamaulipas state security spokesman Luis Alberto Rodriguez said 13 of the 29 have been recaptured.

Ciudad Victoria has been dominated for years by the fragmented Zetas cartel.
