Police in Brazil say rioters in a jail in the southern city of Cascavel have killed four fellow inmates and injured several others.

Two of the victims were decapitated and others were pushed from the roof of the building, two of whom died, they said.

At least 700 prisoners are reported to be involved in the uprising, which began on Sunday morning.

The prisoners are said to be unhappy about how the prison is run, as well as about food and hygiene there.

Local media showed prisoners beating men held with ropes around their necks on the roof of one of the buildings.
