Venezuela prison

A relative of an inmate of El Rodeo II penitentiary prays outside the prison compounds in Guatire, outskirts of Caracas, on June 19, 2011. National Guard troops were scrambling Sunday trying to retake control of Venezuela's El Rodeo prison, where 25 people have been killed in three days of unrest, the country's interior chief said. The prison riot at El Rodeo, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Caracas, is the most violent in Venezuela since 1999, when a battle between guards and prisoners left 27 people dead.
