ASUNCION, Paraguay – Paraguayan prisoners rioted Friday to press a list of demands including more sex.
Inmates seized the Esperanza prison’s director and other administrators, demanding nighttime conjugal visits and an end to mistreatment by guards.
Paraguayan prisons allow such visits during the day — but that clashes with working hours at Esperanza, where inmates have jobs, such as at a prison clothing factory.
Justice Minister Derlis Osorio said the riot ended after four hours with no deaths or injuries.
It was not clear whether prison authorities agreed to allow nighttime conjugal visits, but local media reported that they agreed to investigate claims of abuse and end strip searches of visitors.
