    HEADLINE: 22 INMATES HURT IN FIGHT AS VISITING OFFICIALS
    ARRIVE

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - A disturbance
    that broke out in the privatized
    Bayamon
    Correctional Complex as a group of legislators arrived for a
    visit last
    week left 22 prisoners injured.


    Officials at the Wackenhut Correctional Facility
    initially said the
    incident was merely a fight between
    two prisoners but later acknowledged 22
    inmates
    received medical attention. Lourdes Burgos, a corrections
    spokesman,
    said inmates broke a water pipe - used for
    fire safety - and flooded the maximum
    security
    quadrant.

    Inmates told reporters the disturbance
    broke out after two prison captains
    beat up two
    inmates.
