Caracas, Oct 22 (EFE).- Six inmates were killed and two more were injured Tuesday in a brawl at a prison in the southwestern Venezuelan state of Amazonas, Gov. Liborio Guarulla said.
The prisoners, divided into gangs, fought for internal control of the penal center, Guarulla told reporters in Puerto Ayacucho, the state capital.
The governor recalled a similar incident last year that left eight inmates dead, and said that "owning guns is permanent" in that lockup.
