February 17 Asunción News: Riot broke out in a prison in Paraguay on the 16th local time, killing at least six prisoners.
At present, the incident has subsided.
Paraguay’s Ministry of Justice told the media that the riots occurred in Tacomb prison in Asunción, the capital, because a leader of the gang organization Capital First Command was transferred to prison, causing confrontation between prisoners of different gangs.
Due to power outages in some cells, it is difficult to confirm whether there are other casualties.
Some videos circulating on the Internet show that the scene of the riot is very bloody.
Capital First Command is a powerful gang organization in Brazil, Paraguay and other places.
Previously, there have been bloody riots caused by the transfer of key prisoners to prisons in many parts of Brazil.
