Brilio.net - A set of pictures has revealed the horrific conditions of an overcrowded prison in the Philippines.

Quezon City Jail in Manila, is home to 3,800 inmates — five times more than it was built to house.

Inmates take turns sleeping as up to 200 men squeeze into a single cell built for 20. They often develop rashes or boils as they sleep on the damp floor, staircases and the basketball courts.

There are cockroaches in what little food ration the prisoners get, leaving the men undernourished. Their health suffers further from a lack of ventilation in their cells.

The set of photos depicts inmates handling daily activities in Quezon.

Fair warning: these are not for the fainthearted.
