More than 50 inmates have been confirmed dead following a series of riots at three prisons in Ecuador, authorities announced.

The uprisings were reported Tuesday morning after several criminal groups battling for control inside the penitentiary systems clashed, the Ecuador National Police said via a statement.


Images from the bloody carnage that were posted on social media showed several prisoners posing with the severed heads of their rivals while several bodies of dead inmates were lying on top of each other. A video recorded by a detainee also captured the gruesome moment a prisoner repeatedly stabbed another inmate with a butcher's knife. 

At least 38 prisoners died during a rebellion in the B wing of the Turi Social Rehabilitation Center in the southern city of Cuenca, according to Ecuador's Attorney General's Office.

'Criminal organizations carry out acts of simultaneous violence in several prisons in the country,' President Lenín Moreno said via a tweet. 'The [National Police] in coordination with the Interior Minister [Patricio Pazmiño] are acting to regain control of prisons in Guayaquil, Cuenca and Latacunga.'

Ecuadorean newspaper El Universo reported the military and police officers were sent into the prison to regain control, and that local fire departments were dispatched to assist security forces outside the prison.

A woman visiting an inmate at the Turi Social Rehabilitation Center said the riot started around 10am local time and that she saw an image of a dead prisoner on a mobile phone.

The woman said visitors were prohibited from leaving the visiting area, and that some of the prisoners were removed from the room over fears that they were going to be killed. 

The visitors eventually were allowed to exit after emergency alarms sounded off.
