A prison in Ecuador, a country where more than 100 inmates have died so far this year, was attacked yesterday with drones in the middle of "a war between international cartels," authorities reported.
The Guayas province penitentiary “was attacked with drones from outside. There were 3 explosions, causing damage to the ceilings of the center, "said the National Service for Comprehensive Attention to Privy Persons (Snai) on its twitter account.
The agency called the attack on the penitentiary "serious." "We are in the middle of a war between international cartels," he said.
The incident left no injuries or deaths in the prison. “It is presumed that the attacks were directed towards the maximum security pavilion where two leaders are being held. It would be about a settling of accounts between these gangs and the cartels ”, declared Fausto Cobo, director of Snai to local media.
