Four foreign inmates break out of Bali jail using tunnel


Indonesian police have launched a search for four foreign inmates, who escaped from an overcrowded prison on the resort island of Bali by crawling through a narrow tunnel dug under the walls, authorities said on Monday, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

"The tunnel is about 12 meters (39 ft) long and we suspect it took more than a week to build," the head of Kerobokan prison Tony Nainggolan said, adding that police believed the men were still in Bali and not far from the prison.

 

The four are Australian Shaun Edward Davidson, Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov Iliev, Indian Sayed Muhammad Said and Malaysian Tee Kok King, Bali police spokesman Hengky Widjaja said.

 

The tunnel had a diameter of 50 x 75 cm (20 x 30 inches) and was found filled with water on Monday morning, Widjaja said.
