CARANDIRU PRISION RIOT
Located near Sao Paolo, Carandiru is one of the most notorious prisons in Brazil. It is the largest correctional facility in all of South America, and is also the site of the massacre of 111 prisoners by guards in October 1992. (The image pictured right is from that massacre.)

This graphic series of pictures is more recent than that; they are believed to depict inmate-on-inmate violence, meted out as punishment. It is easy for tempers to flare in a prison designed for 3,200 inmates that is currently holding over 8,000.
