BEIRUT - Two inmates at Lebanon's largest prison died early on Wednesday when security forces stormed the complex to end a four-day riot by prisoners protesting against overcrowding, security sources said.

One inmate was killed when a percussion bomb exploded near him as he tried to throw it at security forces, the National News Agency said. Another inmate apparently died from a heart attack, the agency said.

Security sources confirmed two inmates had died. Nine inmates and four policemen were wounded.
