200 inmates riot at California prison; dozens injured

The fight in the yard at a prison in Soledad broke out just after 11 a.m., and staff fired nine warning shots from a rifle and used chemical agents and non-lethal rounds to break up the brief incident, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said in a statement.

No one on staff at the Correctional Training Facility was hurt, the department said.

Eight inmates required outside hospitalization with injuries that included cuts, puncture wounds and bruises, and all were stable. About 50 other inmates were treated for minor injuries, the department said.

Officials said that four “inmate-manufactured weapons” were found, and the cause of the riot is being investigated. A deadly force review board will conduct a review of the incident, the department said.

Russia nuclear agency says 5 dead in missile test explosion | Fox News

Russia’s nuclear agency said Saturday that five of its employees were killed earlier this week when a rocket engine exploded during a missile test at a military base in the far northern Arkhangelsk region.

Russia’s Defense Ministry initially said that said two people died in Thursday’s explosion and four were injured, including servicemen and civilian engineers. It was not immediately clear if the five fatalities cited in a Saturday statement by Rosatom were all in addition to the previously reported deaths.

In addition to the five deaths, Rosatom said three of its employees were treated for burns. The test took place on a sea platform during a period of work related to the engineering and technical support of “isotopic power sources” in a “liquid propulsion system,” the agency said.
