Riot in Israeli Security Jail

Some 400 Palestinian prisoners staged a riot in a high security Israeli jail on Thursday.

Reports from the jail in Ashkelon say the Prison Service brought in reinforcements to quell the unrest. It is believed they used tear gas.

There were reports of one or two light injuries.

The riots came as the Palestinian Authority continues to demand more prisoner releases.
