BENTONG: In a scene reminiscent of the infamous boxing match between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield, a death row inmate grew aggressive and bit off his prison warden's ear.

Bentong OCPD Supt Mohamad Mansor Mohamad Nor said the prisoner, a foreigner who was found guilty of a drug offence, was in the midst of being transported to a different block when he grew aggressive and started to attack a prison chief inspector at around 2.05pm on Wednesday.
