TARINKOT (Pajhwok): At least three people have been wounded during a clash in the central jail of Uruzgan province, an official said on Sunday.

The clash took place during hunger strike by the inmates on Saturday night, prison director Col. Khalilur Rahman told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said one inmate snatched a jail guard’s weapon and started firing at policemen. The clash continued for two hours, but no one suffered casualties, Rahman added.

However, another security source, who wished not to be named, claimed three people including a prison official and two policemen were wounded.

The source said the inmates went on hunger strike to press for their rights and denounce harassment by police.
