Roumieh juvenile inmates protest mobile confiscations
BEIRUT: Tension ran high Sunday at the Juveniles' building in Lebanon's largest prison, the Roumieh prison complex, northeast of Beirut, over the confiscation of mobile phones and other banned items, the National News Agency reported.
The juvenile inmates protested violently over the confiscation of their phones and over a decision by the prison's administration to transfer some inmates to other prisons, NNA added.
There were also reports that the prisoners have held some of the security personnel as hostages, demanding the fulfillment of their demands.
