Hundreds of Palestinian  prisoners have clashed with Israeli guards at a 
prison in the Negev  desert, southern Israel.  
Fifteen Palestinians and 15 guards were hurt, Israeli officials said.  
The Israeli authorities say the riot started during a routine search  but the 
Palestinian Authority said it was "unacceptable practices at the  jail".  
More than 2,000 Palestinians are held in Ketziot Prison. At one point,  some 
of the camp was on fire as prisoners battled with their guards.
