Prisoners to Clean Up Debris of Cuban Riot

United Press International

About two dozen federal prisoners will move into the Federal Detention Center this week to help clean up and repair damage from the nine-day insurrection of Cuban inmates in November, a prison official said Monday.

The Cubans burned much of the medium-security facility and most of it must be rebuilt. Officials said the prisoners who will assist in the cleanup are Americans from minimum-security facilities.
