At least 13 inmates were killed and 15 injured in a shoot-out in a prison in Panama on Tuesday.
Officials said they found three AK-47 assault rifles and five pistols.
President Laurentino Cortizo said an investigation would be launched into how the guns got into La Joyita jail east of the capital, Panama City.
“These firearms didn’t fall out of the sky, there was obviously some type of cooperation there for firearms to be brought in,” he said.
