MEXICO CITY — At least five people were killed in a spasm of violence that shook one of Mexico’s largest states over the weekend, authorities said Monday.

Gunmen on Sunday blew up 18 electrical substations — twice the originally reported number — and torched six gasoline stations in Michoacán state, just west of the nation’s capital. Nearly half a million people were left without electricity for 15 hours.
