At least 60 people have died for a “bloody” riot in a Brazilian prison in the city of Manaus, capital of the state of Amazon, after a confrontation between two rival criminal factions, according to Security Minister of the state of Amazonas, Sergio Fontes.

Epitacio Almeida, president of the Human Rights Commission of OAB (Order of Lawyers of Brazil, who participated in the negotiations by the end of the rebellion), coordinated the negotiations with the prisoners and worked for the release of the hostages, who were finally released in the Monday morning, when it ended the uprising.

The deaths came after a clash between the First Command of the Capital (PCC), based in Sao Paulo, and Family of the North (NDF), which dominates the prisons of the state of Amazonia.

During the confrontation there were several beheadings and some bodies were burned and mutilated, according to the Order of Lawyers.
