Political prisoners held in one of Venezuela's most notorious prisons 'revolt'



Relatives of political prisoners held in one of Venezuela's most notorious prisons say the inmates have staged an uprising.

 
Inmates held at El Helicoide, the headquarters of Venezuela's secret service, say they took over part of its cell blocks.


They say they did so after a political prisoner was beaten.


More than 300 political prisoners are being held in Venezuela, according to pressure group Foro Penal.
