Text size Aa Aa

An FBI investigation has been launched at a privately-run US jail after guards allegedly stood by and watched a prisoner get beaten unconscious.

Surveillance footage from Idaho Correctional Centre, shows Hanni Elabed being punched and stamped on by a fellow inmate while three guards appear to look on.

The 24-year-old victim suffered brain damage and short term memory loss in the attack earlier this year.

Also known as ‘Gladiator School’ because of its high rate of inmate on inmate violence, the FBI probe is investigating whether prisoner human rights were breached.
