    For the second time since December, cell doors at the Arkansas prison housing the state's death row inmates have reportedly been accidentally left unlocked.

    No one left their cells when a guard unlocked 26 doors on death row at Varner prison, about 110 kilometres south-east of Little Rock, for three minutes on Wednesday.

    They (the prisoners) sat there. They didn't move but the death row inmates are the best behaved inmates in prison," said Dina Tyler, spokeswoman for the Arkansas prison system.

    In December, an electrical fault opened all doors in a cellblock housing violent prisoners such as murderers and rapists.
