[JURIST] The US military announced Tuesday [MNF-Iraq press release] that a riot broke out at Baghdad's Abu Ghraib prison over the weekend after an inmate made a failed attempt to escape from the prison. The "disturbance" took place late Sunday evening after a prisoner was caught trying to break out in the midst of a heavy sandstorm. Four guards and six detainees suffered minor injuries when detainees in several compounds threw rocks at light generators and guards. Military personnel ended the incident and no detainees escaped from the prison. Last week three detainees escaped [Reuters report] from Abu Ghraib through holes in a fence. The US military has not announced if any have been caught. Detainee protests and disturbances [JURIST report] have hit several US detention facilities in Iraq this year in the wake of massive security sweeps that have caused overcrowding. AP has more.
