Around 20 detainees held in the Urso Branco prison, Porto Velho, Rondonia state are reportedly in danger of being killed by other inmates. Most of those in danger are recently transferred detainees being housed in holding cells (seguro), which are used for inmates deemed to be at risk from others. Continued negligence from state authorities has led to extreme overcrowding, and prisoners of different categories being held together.
