HUNT FOR ESCAPEES AFTER NEW INDONESIA JAILBREAK

0

LABUHAN RUKU: Indonesian security forces on Monday hunted for a group of inmates who escaped from an overcrowded jail on Sumatra island, in the latest breakout to hit the country’s decrepit prison system. Prisoners rampaged through Labuhan Ruku jail on Sunday, setting fire to the building and attacking wardens, angered at a failure to give them sentence reductions and their treatment. Thirty prisoners managed to escape but authorities had recaptured 23.
