The death toll from bloody clashes earlier this week between rival gangs in an Ecuador prison has surpassed 100, with dozens more wounded, the government prison authority said Wednesday.

The SNAI agency gave the fresh toll on Twitter in the wake of Tuesday's violence at the Guayaquil prison complex, in which some inmates were beheaded.
