Couldn't find a thread about this?


Six heavily armed inmates who held their warden and a guard hostage at a prison in Taiwan have committed suicide after a dramatic 14-hour siege.

The prisoners had broken into the prison's armory and seized a number of weapons, including rifles, handguns and more than 200 bullets, Justice Minister Lou Ying-shay told reporters Thursday.

Warden Chen Shih-chih and the head of prison guards, Wang Shih-tsang, were found safe, according to the country's justice ministry. Officials said the six men turned their guns on themselves.



The inmates, who were serving a range of sentences for crimes including murder, complained about their sentences, mistreatment at the jail, and the recent release of former President Chen Shui-bian on medical grounds, according to Taiwanese media reports. He was serving a 20-year sentence for corruption.

This sounds like the "official story" rather than what really happened.

All very convenient.
