Indonesian police storm Bali prison to end riot

DENPASAR (AFP) - Indonesian security forces stormed Bali's Kerobokan prison on Wednesday to quell a riot that raged through the night at the infamous jail where 12 Australians including drug smugglers are held. 'About 100 police and military forces entered the prison at about dawn. They were forced to open fire and three people were injured in the legs and taken to hospital,' Bali deputy police chief Ketut Untung Sayoga told AFP. Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) said all 12 Australian prisoners at Kerobokan, including two on death row and six serving life sentences, were safe. Indonesian authorities said the riot broke out in a separate part of the overcrowded prison to where foreigners including the Australians are held, and that they were not involved in the fracas.
