Five people were pronounced dead at the scene and a sixth victim died at a nearby hospital. State police seized a vehicle left inside the carwash. More than 1,500 people have died in drug-related violence in Veracruz state during the past 11 months. Nationwide, homicides climbed by 62 per cent in the first 10 months of this year, according to figures published by the National Public Safety System.

Veracruz, the heartland of the Mexican oil industry, is also an important agricultural region and boast the country’s second-busiest cargo port.
