The number of people killed as a result of a riot at a prison in eastern Bolivia on Friday has risen to 31.

 

Another 37 inmates were seriously injured when fighting broke out between rival gangs inside the jail.

 

Most of the victims burned to death after inmates blew up two propane tanks and used others as flamethrowers.

 

Among those killed is an 18-month-old toddler, one of the many children living in the prison with its incarcerated parents.
