The Rio Times reported officials at Altamira Regional Recovery Center, in southwestern Para, said 16 of the victims were decapitated while others were asphyxiated.

The death toll could rise once a search of all areas of the prison is completed, Jarbas Vasconcelos, the state prisons chief, said at a news conference.

Vasconcelos said inmates also set fires to prevent authorities from entering.

The newspaper reported that two prison officers who were taken hostage have since been freed.
