Ecuador’s three prisons riot, killing 75 prisoners
At least 75 inmates have been killed and dozens injured in riots in three South American prisons.
According to foreign media, authorities say riots broke out between opposition groups in three different jails, killing dozens and injuring several.
According to local media, the prisoners were shot dead and stabbed to death, while 75 prisoners were killed and dozens were injured in the riots.
On the other hand, the head of Ecuador’s prison agency says a leadership dispute between two anti-criminal groups in prisons has led to riots.
According to officials, more than 800 policemen restored law and order in the prisons and several policemen were injured.
