Bagdhad, Iraq - A riot broke out at the ever notorious US run Abu Ghraib prison after an escape attempt was thwarted overnight. Inmates, many of whom are forced to sleep outside due to overcrowding despite the extreme summer weather, broke lights and generators, and pelted soldiers with stones. The uprising was put down by a rapid response unit and according to the Army, prisoners and soldiers only suffered minor wounds.
