China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

One pris­oner died and five were in­jured in a clash in­volv­ing some 50 in­mates in Gu­atemala, state prison au­thor­i­ties said. Spe­cial forces of the Pavon Prison, lo­cated just out­side the coun­try’s cap­i­tal, in­ter­vened to re­gain con­trol of the in­sti­tu­tion that houses some 4,000 in­mates, prison sys­tem spokesman Rudy Esquivel told jour­nal­ists. He said the cause of the clash was un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, ad­ding that vic­tims showed signs of blows and wounds “pre­sum­ably” caused by knives.
