11 people were killed in a mass shooting in the town of Chicomuselo, located in Chiapas, Mexico.

This area is notorious for being a route for smuggling migrants and drugs and is near the border with Guatemala. The news was reported by ABC News, citing the Chiapas State Prosecutor's Office.

The state has recently witnessed violent clashes between drug cartels. Over the past two days, the border region has experienced significant violence and confrontations among various gangs vying for control over smuggling routes for migrants, drugs, and weapons.

This ongoing violence has led to the displacement of thousands of residents.

The increase in cartel-related violence highlights the urgent need for enhanced security measures in Chiapas and the broader border region.

The competition among criminal organizations for lucrative smuggling routes continues to escalate, causing widespread fear and instability in the affected communities.

Local authorities are investigating the incident and working to restore order in the region.
