Phoenix, Nov 27 | Hundreds of inmates at a prison in the US state of Arizona staged a riot, authorities said, adding that there were no reports of injuries or casualties.

The prison was still on lockdown as of Thursday afternoon.

Local KJZZ radio station said families of the inmates reported pepper balls and rubber bullets were fired at the prisoners, the rioters were zip-tied and held on a yard, while officials searched their living areas.

According to KJZZ, emails from inmates living at the unit said windows had been broken on the property and one inmate wrote that the unit looked like it had “exploded”.
