Widespread brawling among inmates erupted on Tuesday morning in Athens’ Korydallos Prison.

According to the first information available, the fights, which have also been termed as riots, began in two wings of the prison, the B and E sections.

Two squads of Greece’s Riot Police, the MAT, have rushed to the site.

Korydallos Prison is comprised of both maximum-security and ordinary male and female sections, and is located in the Korydallos neighborhood of the city of Piraeus.
