Riot in Colombia prison over coronavirus fears leaves 23 dead

A prison riot in Colombia’s capital Bogotá left 23 prisoners dead and 83 injured as detainees protested about sanitary conditions amid the outbreak of coronavirus. Justice Minister Margarita Cabello said the violence was a result of an attempted mass breakout, part of a coordinated plan with disturbances reported across 13 other prisons. She denied claims of unsanitary conditions in the prison.
