Security forces fired in the air on Thursday to prevent angry relatives from storming the al-Qobbeh prison in Tripoli.
The National News Agency said the families burned tires outside the prison after a number of inmates staged a riot that involved starting a fire inside the facility.
Al-Jadeed television reported later that the situation was brought under control.
No injuries were reported during the incidents according to NNA.
