Brazil prison riot kills at least 38
BBC |
"At least 34 people were killed - many burnt or horribly mutilated - in a rebellion at a prison in Rio de Janeiro, police and legislators say. The rebellion has now ended, but police said they were still securing the Benfica facility in northern Rio, and feared more bodies could be found. The revolt began on Saturday morning when inmates seized guns and hostages during an attempt to stage a jailbreak... Rio state legislator Geraldo Moreira, who entered the prison with police after the revolt ended, said he counted 28 bodies before giving up. 'There are bodies which have been mutilated, burnt, pieces spread around, bits of bodies in the rubbish. I reached the point where I didn't have enough stomach to continue,' he said. Remains of at least 34 bodies have been retrieved, but firefighters said the final death toll could reach 50."
