At least 40 people have been killed in a huge gun fight between police and suspected drug cartel members in western Mexico.
Officials say that "almost all" of the dead were suspected criminals.
The bloody firefight took place in an area between Michoacan and Jalisco states that is known as a stronghold of the Jalisco New Generation drug cartel, which has mounted several large-scale attacks on federal and state forces in recent weeks.
Michoacan governor Salvador Jara told local media "the likeliest thing is" the Jalisco cartel was involved in the shootout.
Former Archbishop of Westminster Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor has admitted he is deeply ashamed of the way he handled sex abuse allegations concerning a priest in the Catholic Church in the 1980s.
Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor disclosed how, as the Bishop of Arundel and Brighton, he allowed priest Michael Hill to become the chaplain of Gatwick Airport despite Hill confessing to him that he had abused young boys.
Speaking during a Q&A session at the Hay Festival in south Wales, the 82-year-old cleric said he sent Hill for therapy before moving him to a new parish after being given assurances he would have no contact with children.
However, while at his new airport post, Hill would go on to sexually assault a young man with learning difficulties who had missed a flight.
Hill was jailed in 1997 for a string of attacks and then again for another five years in 2002 after disclosing fresh abuse during a sex offender treatment programme
