Five arrested over deadly Mexico migrant centre fire
Five people have been arrested for alleged roles in the deaths of 39 people after a fire at a Mexican migrant detention centre this week.
As part of the homicide investigation, Sara Irene Herrerias, head of the attorney general office’s human rights unit, on Thursday said warrants had been issued for three officers at the government’s National Institute for Migration (INM), two private security officers, and the person accused of starting the fire.
She did not clarify which of the six arrest orders remained pending.
A private company, Grupo de Seguridad Privada CAMSA SA de CV, was responsible for security at the centre in the northern border city of Ciudad Juarez, said Security Minister Rosa Icela Rodriguez.
