• Australian uses bed sheets to escape maximum-security jail


    SYDNEY: Red-faced Australian authorities Wednesday vowed to review security after a prisoner used bed sheets and a pillow to scale a wall topped with razor wire and escape from a maximum-security jail. Convicted armed robber Stephen Jamieson made his daring break for freedom on Tuesday and was on the run in a stolen car for 10 hours before police using helicopters and dogs caught up with him about 100 kilometers away from the prison. Corrective Services New South Wales Commissioner Peter Severin said the jailbreak from the prison in Goulburn, around 200 kilometers from Sydney, should never have happened, and announced a full review of the incident by security experts.
