CARACAS: At least 17 Venezuelan inmates who had been on hunger strike over prison conditions, died Wednesday of drug poisoning, police sources said.

The prisoners at David Viloria Correction Center, known as Uribana prison, in Venezuela's Lara state, had been protesting since Tuesday over what they said was inhumane treatment and rights violations by prison officials, anonymous police sources said.

Prison officials said the dead inmates were poisoned after ingesting prescription drugs.

How the inmates all came to consume one or more medications was not immediately clear.

A non-governmental group, Venezuelan Prisons Watch, said however there were 17 dead at the prison in Lara state, and that four more inmates died at a facility in the state of Maracay.

Prisons Minister Iris Varela said on Twitter there had been an incident involving "prisoners affected by inappropriate ingestion of medications" in the Lara jail.

She did not immediately confirm deaths.
