A cartel territorial dispute is believed to be the cause of a grenade attack at a cockfight attended by young children in Mexico.

The attack took place this week in Epazoyucan, Hidalgo. Local news outlets reported four victims injured and three killed by a grenade blast. At least one victim is a young child.

Cell phone video shared on social media shows the moment when the grenade explodes near small children.

A second grenade did not explode and authorities were able to seize it. The device is described as makeshift in nature.

Local authorities have not revealed which criminal organization is responsible, however, the blast comes at a time when various cartels fight for control of central Mexican states. Despite rising violence nationwide, officials claim security conditions are improving.
