5 die in juvenile detention center blaze in Peru

AFP

LIMA: Five detainees at a juvenile center in Peru’s northern city of Trujillo died Wednesday when a blaze broke out in the facility during a revolt, police said, reports AFP. “Right now, we know we have five people dead—five minors who have died. We are still at the site,” police official Helber Ordonez told AFP. “There was a rebellion,” he said. Some detainees had set fire to mattresses in one part of the center “and as a result the blaze started,” he said. Thirty other detainees were hurt and were taken to hospital, emergency officials and local media said. Some were seen being carried to ambulances and municipal vans. The fierce heat from the fire initially made it difficult for police to enter the facility, media reported.
