Celaya, Mexico:

Armed assailants killed 10 people in a pool lounge in an industrial area in central Mexico affected by drug-related violence, authorities said on Thursday.

According to the regional prosecutor’s office, the massacre happened on Wednesday night in the municipality of Tarimoro in Guanajuato state.

The bodies of nine men were found at the scene and another man died in hospital.

Guanajuato Governor Diego Sinhue Rodriguez condemned what he called a “cowardly attack” and vowed to restore order.

Guanajuato has become one of Mexico’s most violent states due to a dispute between the New Generation Santa Rosa de Lima and Jalisco gangs, which fight for control of the drug trade and stolen fuel.

Since December 2006, when the government launched a controversial military campaign against drugs, Mexico has recorded more than 340,000 murders, according to official figures.

Authorities have blamed most of the killings on organized crime.
