January 14, 1986|United Press International

INDIANAPOLIS — The uprising at the Indiana Reformatory in which one inmate died and two dozen people were injured was triggered by racial unrest, a corrections department official said Monday.

Security will be tightened, the official said, and commissary, recreation, visitation and telephone privileges will be suspended indefinitely at the maximum-security prison because of the disturbance Saturday night.
