Prison riot in Brazil leaves 16 inmates decapitated and dozens more killed - CNN

Jarbas Vasconcelos, the superintendent of the penitentiary system in the state of Para, said 16 of the 52 inmates that died in the Altamira prison on Monday were decapitated.
The incident is the latest in a string of deadly violence that has plagued Brazil's prisons in recent months.
In May, 55 inmates were killed in gang-related riots at four prisons in western Brazil.
The local prison authorities said at the time the deaths were a result of violent clashes among rival factions within the same drug gang, known as the Family of the North.

Human rights groups have accused the government of doing too little to prevent the violence at prisons that have become recruitment centers for gangs -- and even facilitating clashes by allowing the cells to become overcrowded.
The clashes pose a challenge to the new far-right President Jair Bolsonaro, but could also end up giving his approval rating a boost as he is seen as tough on crime and has previously vowed to crack down on criminal gangs and prison violence.
