Solomon Islands improves prison conditions
Prison authorities in Solomon Islands say they are working to improve conditions under which inmates are being held.

This follows a number of orders by the country's High Court in favour of four prisoner applicants.

The prisoners had claimed their detention conditions did not meet minimum required standards, and were unlawful.

The Acting Commissioner of Prisons, Francis Haisoma, says all the requirments laid down by the High Court are now being met.

He says these included the amount of time availabe for exercise and the provision of certain foodstuffs.

Earlier this week, prisoners at the country's main jail in the capital Honiara broke of out of their cells and took over part of the complex in a day-long protest.

It required the intervention of local and international police before the situation was eventually brought under control.
