'Joran van der Sloot involved in prison stabbings'
Wednesday 13 April 2011
Murder suspect Joran van der Sloot has been involved in several stabbing incidents while in prison in Peru, magazine Panorama reports on Wednesday.
The magazine says Van der Sloot, who is charged with murdering a young Peruvian woman, has stabbed three different people, one of whom required emergency treatment.
Panorama says Van der Sloot, 23, is a heavy drug user in prison. 'He has been put into solitary confinement several times but comes out even more angry,' one source told the magazine.
Van der Sloot is also suspected of involvement in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway on the Caribbean island of Aruba nearly six years ago.
Van der Sloot's lawyer Maximo Altez does not deny his client has been involved in the stabbing incidents, Panorama says.
