Eight dead in second Brazil prison riot: Police

Eight inmates were killed and burned Monday in a fresh prison riot in Brazil, police said, a day after clashes between rival factions in another jail left 25 detainees dead.

"There are thought to be eight people dead but the bodies are burned and the medical authorities will have to confirm" the toll, a local police spokesman told AFP after Monday's riot at a jail in the northwestern state of Rondonia.

It was the latest eruption of gruesome violence to hit the country's underfunded and overcrowded prison system.
