Uruguay Authorities Say No Serious Injuries in Prison Riot

MONTEVIDEO – A disturbance inside a prison in Montevideo resulted in damage, but no significant injuries, Uruguayan officials said Friday.

The trouble erupted Thursday night in Module 3 at Santiago Vazquez Prison on the west side of the capital when members of rival factions squared off.

But thanks to the efforts of a female guard and the work of a negotiator, who “maintained dialogue with the inmates throughout the night,” the fight did not materialize, the Interior Ministry said.

While the inmates involved in the disturbance surrendered in the wee hours of Friday, firefighters had to intervene to suppress minor blazes in some of the cells.

“Of the 220 inmates who lodge in that module, 134 participated in the revolt,” the Interior Ministry said, adding that authorities will investigate to determine who instigated the riot.
