CAPTION ONLY: INMATES BUSED TO OTHER PRISONS

SHARE CAPTION ONLY: INMATES BUSED TO OTHER PRISONS

A prisoner at the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill, Pa., boards a bus for another facility Saturday after three days of rioting destroyed or damaged most of the sprawling prison. Gov. Robert P. Casey said he will appoint an independent commission to determine the cause of the rioting, which left nearly 125 people injured. A fifth of the Camp Hill prison's population has been bused to other state and regional prisons, and additional inmates will be transferred out in coming days. Hundreds of inmates who spent Friday night with blankets in two exercise yards were moved into undamaged cells at the prison, where the ruins of 14 of the complex's 31 buildings continued to smolder. The governor said it is still too early to determine the cause of the uprising. Ten people remain in area hospitals.
