At least 49 inmates are killed and dozens more injured in jail inferno sparked when rioting prisoners started a fire to stop cops entering their enclosure in Colombia

A fire in a Colombian prison today killed 49 inmates and injured dozens moreThe tragedy took place during a riot at the prison in the southwestern city TuluaPolice are investigating if prisoners lit mattresses as part of an 'escape attempt' 

At least 49 inmates were killed and dozens more injured early Tuesday after a fire broke out during a prison riot in Colombia.

The tragedy occurred when rioting inmates set a fire to try to prevent police entering their enclosure at the prison in the city of Tulua.

Though authorities are investigating whether prisoners lit their mattresses as part of an ‘escape attempt’ or whether the riot was provoked ‘to cover some other situation.’

Tito Castellanos, director of the National Penitentiary and Prison Institute (INPEC), said: ‘Unfortunately there was a riot in the pavilion number eight of the Tulua prison, where there are 1,267 prisoners, with the unfortunate result that 49 people died.’

He said another 30 people were ‘injured and affected by the blaze and the smoke.’

There were 180 inmates in the prison section affected by fireCastellanos made no mention of whether any prisoners actually escaped.

While a spokesperson for INPEC earlier told AFP that the death toll ‘may change’ and local radio station Caracol reported that more than 40 people had been injured.

Castellanos praised the efforts of prison guards, some of whom were injured, to control the blaze and help prisoners to safety.

He said that without their intervention ‘the result would have been worse.’

Outgoing President Ivan Duque sent a tweet offering his solidarity with relatives of the victims.

‘We regret the events that occurred in the prison in Tulua, Valle del Cauca,’ Duque said.

‘I have given instructions to clarify this terrible situation. My solidarity is with the families of the victims.’

Fatal prison riots are not uncommon in Latin America. In Colombia’s neighbor Ecuador, nearly 400 prisoners have been killed in six riots since early 2021.

Colombia’s prison system has a capacity for 97,000 inmates but is overpopulated by some 16,000, according to INPEC.
