At least 68 killed in latest Ecuadorian prison riots (VIDEO)


At least 68 prisoners have been killed after riots broke out in a prison in Ecuador on Saturday.

Saturday’s 8-hour battle inside Litoral Prison between rival gangs is the latest cycle of violence to hit one of Ecuador’s prisons.

In September, 119 people died in one of Ecuador’s worst prison massacres ever.

Prisoners “tried to dynamite a wall to get to Pavilion 2 to carry out a massacre. They also burned mattresses to try to drown (their competitors) in smoke, “said Governor Pablo Arosemena of Guayas Province, where Guayaquil is located.

“We are fighting drug trafficking,” Arosemena said. “It is very difficult.”

According to reports, prisoners were armed with rifles and explosives.

Some unconfirmed reports claim that prisoners also had machetes and chainsaws and at least 5 people were beheaded.

AP reported:

A long-running shootout between rival gangs inside Ecuador’s largest prison early Saturday left at least 68 prisoners dead in the latest violence to hit the Litoral Penitentiary, which recently experienced the country’s worst prison massacre.

The fighting lasted for almost eight hours in the lock in the coastal city of Guayaquil and authorities attributed the fighting to prison gangs linked to international drug cartels. Videos circulating on social media show bodies, some burned, lying on the ground inside the jail.
