Nearly 60 inmates killed across four Brazil prisons over two days of violence | Fox News

Nearly 60 inmates were killed at four different prisons in the capital of Brazil’s northern Amazonas state over two days amid apparent riots, authorities said.

Officials with the state prison agency said at least 40 inmates were found at three different prisons in Manaus on Monday and they all showed signed of asphyxia.

Their deaths came just a day after 15 inmates were killed during a riot at Manaus’ Anisio Jobim Prison Complex – the same place 56 prisoners died in similar violence two years earlier
