At least 10 killed in Brazil prison riot

Officials say a riot in an overcrowded prison in northeastern Brazil has left at least 10 inmates dead and more than 30 injured.


Maranhao state Public Safety chief Aluisio Mendes tells reporters the uprising began Wednesday night when guards discovered a tunnel that was to be used by 60 inmates to escape from the Pedrinhas Penitentiary in the state capital of Sao Luis. (AP)
