New unrest in Brazil's prison kills at least 33 inmates

New unrest in Brazil's prison kills at least 33 inmatesThe riot took place just five days after 56 inmates were slaughtered in a nearby state in the country's worst prison massacre for more than two decades.

At least 33 prisoners have been killed in a new prison uprising in the Amazon region of Brazil, officials said Friday.

No details have been reported of Friday's riot in Roraima state's largest penitentiary.

However, experts had predicted more violence in Brazil's gang-controlled prison system in the wake of the massacre earlier this week, which saw members of one drug gang butcher inmates from a rival criminal group.
