Prisoners take guards hostage in Brazil

An uprising at a Brazilian prison stoked by fears of a COVID-19 outbreak saw seven prison guards briefly taken hostage on Saturday in Manaus. Authorities reported no deaths and said 10 guards and five inmates suffered non-critical injuries. Officials described the rebellion as a distraction from a foiled escape attempt.
