Inmates Demand Crayfish for Hostage Release

Posted on November 16, 2011


Two prisoners demanded fresh crayfish in return for freeing two guards being held hostage at a Tasmanian prison, reports the ABC.

The eight-hour siege was apparently sparked by guards disciplining an inmate by taking his cigarettes from him. The pair allegedly demanded the return of the cigarettes, a seafood pizza, a KFC burger, a McDonalds meal and two crayfish. They also wanted a guarantee they would be treated well when they surrendered.

The guards were eventually released unhurt and no charges have been laid yet.
