SAN DIEGO (AP) - Authorities say two inmates have been stabbed during a riot at a Southern California prison.

Guards used pepper spray to break up the riot.

Authorities say two inmates were taken to a hospital for treatment of stab wounds but there’s no immediate word on their conditions.

Five weapons made by inmates were seized.
