KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Twenty-four people were killed and seven others injured on Wednesday when gunmen burst into an unregistered drug rehabilitation center in central Mexico and opened fire, according to a media report.

Police in the north-central state of Guanajuato said the attack occurred in the city of Irapuato. Three of the seven wounded were reported in serious condition, Dawn reported.

Apparently the attackers shot everyone at the rehab center. State police said nobody was abducted. Photos purporting to show the scene suggest those at the centre were lying down when they were sprayed with bullets.

Guanajuato is the scene of a bloody turf battle between the Jalisco cartel and a local gang, and the state has become the most violent in Mexico.
