MANILA -- Riot has erupted inside the Pasay City Jail as member-inmates of the "Sigue Sigue" and "Sputnik" gangs clashed on Saturday.

An inmate identified as Roberto Roque was rushed to the Pasay City General Hospital after sustaining injuries.

In an interview with DZMM, a witness identified as "Joms" said the fight started because of a woman.

According to "Joms", the woman went to the jail to visit a man, but she was seen by her husband, who is also an inmate there.

It was when she was about to leave that the fight between the two gangs started.

The Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) said it will investigate the incident.
