MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's Congress on Friday approved a divisive internal security bill, sending the widely criticized bill to President Enrique Pena Nieto's desk to be signed into law.

Supporters of the legislation say it will set out clear rules that limit the use of soldiers to fight crime. Rights groups, however, say the bill empowers security forces instead of improving the police.
