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. During the fight, prisoners broke furniture and shattered several surveillance cameras.
On April 6, at around 6.50pm, facility staff reported that "around 100 prisoners are moving around the facility, entering units and beating up other prisoners," the penitentiary service said. The prisoners set on fire two wooden boxes, but the fire was immediately localized and extinguished.
"There were no threats to attack the facility’s staff. Civilian personnel, including women, were evacuated from the building for security concerns," the Federal Penitentiary Service noted.
