Gang Fight in Guatemalan Prison, Seven Dead
A gang fight on Saturday resulted in seven murdered inmates, some of whom were beheaded, Reuters reported.
Prisoners were transferred Friday to Pavoncito prison from Guatemala. Rival gangs were the reasoning behind the riot and murders.
Five inmates were mutilated and decapitated, one was put on a stick that could be seen from outside the prison, Reuters reported.
"This is a dispute between prisoners belonging to different gangs, who bring their conflicts with them when they are locked up," Rudy Esquivel, the prison spokesman told Reuters.
