A prison in Miguel Aleman municipality in Tamaulipas state has been closed, according to an official government announcement.

In an announcement posted on the government website of Tamaulipas, the Secretaria de Seguridad Publica del Estado (SSPE) said that the Centro de Ejecucion de Sanciones (CEDES) prison in Miguel Aleman has been closed and its remaining 152 inmates transferred.

Only nine days ago a total of 12 inmates were released from the prison in an assault by 15 armed suspects.  The suspects had entered the prison during early morning hours of February 26th, held prison officials and guards at gunpoint, and released 12 inmates.  No shots were fired and no one was reported hurt in the incident.

Wednesday's announcement said that 148 inmates serving time for state charges were moved from the CEDES to another state prison in Reynosa.  Four federal prisoners were moved to another federal facility in Matamoros, also in Tamaulipas state.

Mexican Army and Policia Federal (PF) troops provided security for the transfer.
