Colombia playgrounds used as prisons

Authorities say they have been forced to hold prisoners in playgrounds because of overcrowding at local jails.

    Prisoners in Colombia's capital Bogota are being held in playgrounds because authorities cannot find space for them in prison.

    Locals oppose the presence of prisoners in their neighbourhood.

    Al Jazeera's Alessandro Rampietti reports from Bogota.
