Over 500 inmates from the Camp Street Prison, which was destroyed by fire during Sunday’s jailbreak, are being kept in the open field. Others have been removed to other prisons, while others have been released.
Burning bottle lamps were hurled by the inmates in the field at the wooden building that forms part of the Lusignan Prison complex.
Reports are that fire fighters acted quickly and extinguished the burning objects.
The incident occurred just after 02:00hours this morning.
There are also reports of inmates being injured in the upset this morning.
An official statement from authorities on the matter, including, how prisoners accessed flammable materials, is still to be made.
