Bolivia jail battle brews over child custody

Prisoners say they will fight government plans to remove their children from jail.

    Bolivia says it will remove children over the age of six who are living in prison with their parents.

    The announcement followed public outrage over the rape of a 12-year-old girl, allegedly by her inmate father.

    But prisoners say they won't lose custody of their children without a fight.
