    The protest follows several days of rioting by inmates demanding better living conditions in Roumieh prison, east of Beirut.

    Interior Minister Ziad Baroud says Roumieh was built to hold 1,050 prisoners but currently has 3,700 inmates.

    Only 721 have been convicted while the rest are either awaiting trial or are now on trial.
