A clash between rival Ecuadorian gangs resulted in the death of 44 inmates at a prison cell in Ecuador on Sunday.

In a press conference on Monday, Interior Minister Patricio Carrillo revealed that one group of inmates left their cells to attack another inside the Bellavista lockup in Santo Domingo, some 70 kilometers (45 miles) west of Quito, the capital.

“It’s evident that knives executed those who lost their lives; most of the bodies had those characteristics,” Carillo said.

Carillo said firearms, explosives, and other weapons were also found after police assault teams helped retake control of the prison.

He said during the commotion, 220 prisoners escaped the violence, of which 112 had been recaptured.
