    Background: After three days of continuous rioting in the city, police and National Guards in Cincinnati, Ohio, yesterday switched their efforts to quelling a riot which broke out in a local prison. They used tear gas to overcome prisoners who had been screaming and smashing prison equipment.

    Some of the rioters in the prison were believed to be serving sentence for their parts in the riots. National Guards surrounded the building when prisoners began breaking furniture and refusing to return to their quarters.

    Police lobbed tear gas grenades into the building and baton-charged the main building before the riot was put down.

    During racial rioting in Cincinnati this week, some 200 people have been arrested and damage in the city has been calculated as amounting to two million dollars.
