"Inside a prison hellhole"

A slice of life in Mthatha, home of South Africa's most over-crowded prison, according to today's paper:

THE full horror of the country’s most overcrowded prison can be revealed in this shocking photograph showing what warders say are 300 men crammed into a cell built for only 15. Inside Mthatha Medium Prison, which is more than 400 percent overcrowded, inmates are so squashed they are forced to sleep sitting up.
