TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Federal officials have removed four female inmates serving federal sentences from the state-operated Topeka Correctional Facility.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons arrived Thursday to take the prisoners away.

The action comes after the U.S. Department of Justice released a report in September concluding there was widespread sexual abuse of inmates at the Topeka prison.

However, a spokesman for the Kansas Department of Corrections says federal officials didn't give any explanation for the decision to remove the inmates.

A spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons declined to say why the inmates were transferred to other prisons.

The Topeka prison is the only state prison for women in Kansas.
