Smoke rises from Sanliurfa city prison after a second fire on June 18, 2012, in Sanliurfa. A riot has reportedly broken out in the same Sanliurfa prison that witnessed a deadly weekend fire as inmates torched parts of the prison compound, broadcaster NTV reported today. A gendarmerie commander was heard addressing the inmates via loudspeakers during NTV's live broadcast, calling on the prisoners to end the riot. Unconfirmed reports said the fire was started by juvenile prisoners who wanted to protest the poor conditions at the facility. Family members of prisoners rushed to the prison building to learn about the condition of the prisoners, but were not allowed to approach the prison. Police used tear gas to disperse the prisoners' relatives. Thirteen prisoners died from smoke inhalation in the same prison June 16 after inmates started a fire after a quarrel, officials said yesterday. The prime minister and the justice minister have vowed to shed light on the issue. AFP PHOTO/STR
