过度 50 死了 12 在同一所厄瓜多尔监狱发生冲突后受伤,骚乱造成超过 100 九月死了

至少 58 囚犯死亡和 12 were injured after violence broke out at one of Ecuador’s largest prisons.

数十名囚犯在周六早些时候在滨海监狱的冲突中丧生和受伤, the same prison in the Guayas Province where more than 100 是 killed just over a month ago, Guayas Governor Pablo Arosemena said in an announcement.
Ecuadorian police began activating security protocols Friday night after reports of gunshots and possible confrontations between inmates at the prison, Arosemena said.
    The deadly clashes appear to be an instance of gang violence, according to the governor, who said inmatesnot only used weapons and detonations, but they tried to suffocate (other prisoners), burned mattresses, and more.
      The Litoral Penitentiary on the outskirts of the coastal city of Guayaquil was also the site of brutal clashes at the end of September that 声称 118 lives and wounded 79. At least five of those killed were beheaded before security forces were able to restore order.
        After that incident, 厄瓜多尔 declared a state of emergency across the prison system for the second time this year amid rising violence. That state of emergency has been in effect since September 30. The state also promised to devote $ 24 million to the prisons system during the state of emergency.
        多于 300 inmates have been killed in prison violence this year, according to figures from Ecuador’s prison service, SNAI.

          A serious issue of overcrowding

          Following the deadly September riot, Ecuador began working in October on pardoning and commuting thousands of sentences in order to free up space in the country’s chronically overcrowded prisons.
          在七月, Eduardo Moncayo, then-prison chief, told local media that the Litoral Penitentiary was the most overcrowded in the country, 超过 9,000 inmates in a facility planned for 5,000.
          Such overcrowding is the primary cause of violence, Douglas Durán, director of the United Nations Latin American Institute for the Prevention of Crime (ILANUD), 告诉CNN.
          According to our databases, 在 2019 Ecuador jails were at 140% overcapacity. That is considered a cruel and inhumane treatment for the inmates under UN protocols, and it’s a chronic problem across the region,” Duran said.
            Ecuador’s prison inmates are also often stunningly well-armed. In Guayaquil, they deployed automatic weapons and even grenades. At the Ibarra penitentiary, prison guards told CNN they feared being overwhelmed by a growing number of convicts with access to weaponry from machetes to explosives.
            During the investigation into the September massacre, authorities seized 枪, 弹药, 25 bladed weapons, three explosive devices and various drugs, according to SNAI. A video released by Ecuador Police captured security personnel retrieving some of the items from what appears to be one of the prison cells. The clip showed handguns wrapped in plastic, various knives, cell phones, packages of ammunition, and different packages of drugs.
