9 killed, 14 injured in Brazilian prison riot

At least nine prisoners have been killed and another 14 injured during clashes in the Aparecida de Goiânia prison complex in Goiás, Brazilian authorities said. The riot began when a group of armed inmates from C-wing invaded wings A, B and D, which are controlled by a rival gang. At least 77 inmates managed to break out during the clashes, and are now being hunted as fugitives. Authorities have secured the prison.
