By Neil Marks Georgetown (Reuters) – A major riot left 16 people dead in Guyana’s overcrowded main prison after inmates were angered by the seizure of illicit cell phones, officials said on Thursday. “We have a crisis on our hands … as a result of several incidents that commenced at around 9:23 last night,” Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan said at a press conference in Georgetown. President David Granger said a three-member panel would be convened to investigate the incident.
