At least 18 inmates killed in Guatemala prison riots
A bloody riot by prisoners in a jail outside Guatemala's capital left 18 inmates dead over two days, including one person by decapitation and 14 others who were burned to death, authorities said.
The riot at Pavoncito prison started when hundreds of inmates demanded more visiting rights and the dismissal of guards, authorities said, according to AP. At least 30 inmates were seriously wounded. (Albawaba.com)
