From BBC.com:
"Inmates started a fire and clashed with guards during a riot at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison.

Officials said the trouble began while warders were carrying out a search for banned drugs and other items.

Shots were fired, and US helicopters along with Iraqi troops were brought in to help defuse the situation. "

Looks like this has been going on for a couple of days now. Turns out you can change the name to Baghdad Central Prison all you want, doesn't change what happens inside.

I guess the slant on a story is all in the wording.

"Inmates started a fire and clashed with guards during a riot at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison.



The unrest began on Thursday, when three inmates started a fire in their cell "and tried to overpower guards in an apparent escape attempt",




Shots were fired, and US helicopters along with Iraqi troops were brought in to help defuse the situation. "




The Iraqi military and police were called, while US helicopters monitored areas outside the prison, Master Sgt Conner said.

The violence was said to have flared again on Friday, but the US military was not called out and the prison is now reported to be under the authorities' control.

Good find, Cap'n.

Funny how we haven't really heard much about it....and it's supposedly going of for a couple days now...



Abu Ghraib prison inmates rioted for a second straight day Friday to demand better conditions, setting fire to mattresses and seizing an assault rifle from a guard before authorities said the situation was brought under control.
