BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) - A woman hid a grenade in her vagina and smuggled it into a Colombian prison, where it exploded and killed three inmates and injured 15 on Tuesday, prison authorities said.
The woman delivered the grenade during a visit to the all-male Villa Hermosa prison in the city of Cali and inmates were fooling around with it when it went off, said prison spokeswoman Lina Maria Hoyos, adding that guards were not allowed to inspect female visitors' genitals and that the woman had left the prison without being caught.
Colombia's jails are notoriously violent and anarchic. In some prisons, powerful inmates are heavily armed, invite prostitutes for visits and order their meals from restaurants.
