Riot breaks out in Russian youth prison

Inmates at a prison for minors in Russia excited a riot, setting fire to a building and injuring several guards.

Seven employees and six inmates were injured in the riot at the facility in the Sverdlovsk region of the Ural Mountains, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported, citing the regional branch of Russia's prison agency.

Interfax reported that a prison service official, Alexander Sidorov, said five employees were injured and that the situation was under control.

Officials denied an initial report that inmates had seized weapons and exchanged gunfire with law enforcement agents, ITAR-Tass and Interfax said.
