Violence erupts in Ecuadorian jail, killing 68

Agency, 28 October. At least 68 inmates have been killed in clashes inside an Ecuadorian prison. More than 100 prisoners were killed in fighting inside the Littoral Penitentiary in September. उक्त कारागारमा पुनः झडप भने शुक्रबार साँझ सुरु भएको र कारागारभित्र प्रवेश गरेको प्रहरीले बन्दुक, विस्फोटक पदार्थ र धारिला हतियारहरू फेला पारेको विवरणहरू सञ्चारमाध्यमले प्रकाशित गरेका छन्।

Fighting inside Ecuador’s prisons has killed nearly 300 inmates this year alone. The September clashes between the two groups are the most violent in its history. At that time, the prisoners in one area of ​​the prison entered the area from the tunnel and attacked the prisoners of the opposition group. Hundreds of security officers and soldiers were deployed to control the situation.

Twenty-five people have been injured in the ongoing clashes. In recent days, there have been minor clashes inside the prison and three inmates have been shot dead. It is said that the prison was secured from outside by mobilizing troops outside the prison on Saturday. Family members and friends of the inmates gathered outside the prison to see the list of the dead.

According to officials, the dispute erupted after a group leader was released. “After one area of ​​the prison became unmanned, other groups entered and carried out the massacre,” said Pablo Arosemena, the governor of the jailed province. He said that there were 700 inmates in the prison area where the violence broke out.Photo: Agency
