Dozens of Inmates Die in Latest Prison Riot in Ecuador

At the very least sixty eight inmates had been killed and 25 hurt at a prison in Ecuador’s coastal city of Guayaquil, the legal professional general’s place of work mentioned Saturday, as President Guillermo Lasso’s governing administration grappled with increasing violence.

The most up-to-date bloodshed began Friday evening at the infamous Litoral prison, the place officers described a “complete massacre” in which imprisoned gang members broke down walls and burned mattresses to smoke out inmates in a rival pavilion, and then attacked them with knives.
