A relative of an inmate waits outside the Topo Chico prison in the northern city of Monterrey on February 11, 2016Authorities found dozens of knives, cocaine and flat-screen televisions at the Mexican prison where a brawl killed 49 inmates, officials said Friday, highlighting the control drug cartels hold over many penitentiaries. The battle at the Topo Chico prison in the northern industrial city of Monterrey was triggered by a power struggle between rival leaders of the Zetas gang, authorities said. After reclaiming control following Thursday's pre-dawn riot, authorities found half a kilogram of marijuana, 23 doses of crack cocaine, 30 doses of cocaine, 120 makeshift blades, 80 knives, 60 hammers, 400 lighters, 16 USB sticks, 10 MP3 players, and two 67-inch (170-centimeter) televisions, Rodriguez said.

"Come to Lourdes to say I love you," beckons a flyer put out by the Lourdes diocese, touting a "couples weekend" as part of efforts to boost dwindling visitor numbers. "The miracle of Lourdes is that of the encounter," said the rector, Reverend Andre Cabes, recalling the town's founding "meeting" -- the moment 158 years ago when peasant girl Bernadette Soubirous experienced an encounter with the Virgin Mary, according to Church doctrine.
