MOSCOW, May 7. /TASS/. One person died and 15 others were hospitalized after a fight broke out at a medical correctional facility in Russia’s Nizhny Novgorod region, the Federal Penitentiary Service’s press service told TASS on Thursday.

"As a result of a fight organized by prisoners who arrived to the medical correctional facility no. 3 from the medical correctional facility no. 10. People were injured in the fight - 15 prisoners have been hospitalized, and one prisoner died while undergoing operation," the press service said.
