Inmates start hunger strike in Caracas prison

Inmates of La Planta prison, located in southwest Caracas, on Monday began a hunger strike in solidarity with the prisoners of El Rodeo I y II penitentiaries, after the takeover of El Rodeo I prison last weekend.

Prison workers were evacuated for safety reasons, as inmates have threatened them, according to a jail worker who requested anonymity.
