One Inmate Killed in Prison Fight in Uruguay

MONTEVIDEO – A 29-year-old inmate at Unit Number 1, located in Punta de Rieles, northeast of Montevideo, died from injuries he suffered during a fight with other inmates, the Uruguayan Ministry of the Interior reported on Wednesday.

According to a statement from the Ministry of the Interior, a prison official witnessed on Tuesday a fight in one of the cells.

The official said that she activated the alert and saw three inmates taking away “a person who had a lot of bleeding on his face and chest,” and that he was transferred “immediately” to the medical unit, where his death was confirmed.

After the fight, the authorities searched the cell and seized two bottles of fermented drink, one “pen tied with a string,” a “piece of mirror,” a “piece of tube,” two “broomsticks” and a bag of dirt, the Ministry of the Interior said in the statement.
