    Several security agents are being held by inmates in four prisons.

    Five people have died and another 11 have been injured this Sunday in the clashes that have broken out between “organized crime groups” in the Guayas No. 1 Detention Center, in Guayaquil (Ecuador), according to a release shared on Twitter by the National Comprehensive Care Service for Adults Deprived of Liberty and Adolescent Offenders (SNAI).

    “We regret to inform that, so far, five people deprived of liberty have died and eleven have been injured as a result of these events, who were promptly evacuated to hospitals and are out of danger,” the text reads.

    It also indicates that a Crisis Committee has been activated, while the members of the Prison Security and Surveillance Corps, together with elite police groups, they are carrying out a swept by said jail.
