In the early hours of Wednesday a clash occurred in Tlacotepec in the municipality of General Heliodoro Castillo, located in the mountainous area of Guerrero, leaving a toll of 10-12  dead and 20 wounded.

The confrontation between two armed groups,  likely the Los Rojos and Los Ardillos,  occurred during the late hours of Tuesday into the early hours of Wednesday.

Tlacotepec communities and other municipalities in the mountainous area of ​​Guerrero are the areas of poppy crops, so  the dispute is between organized crime groups is ongoing for control of the region.

In a special report on security in Guerrero, the CNDH reported that as of August 2013, the number of people displaced by violence in Tlacotepec,  was between 700 and 900, in a town with a population of only 6000.

The violence occurs days after residents of the community of Chilapa reported at least 15 people were kidnapped by an armed group.
