Four foreigners tunnel out of Kerokoban Prison


Four foreigners have escaped from Bali's Kerokoban Prison using a tunnel, say Indonesian officials, BBC reports.

The prisoners were identified as Australian Shaun Edward Davidson, Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov, Indian Sayed Muhammad and Malaysian Tee Kok King.

Prison governor Tony Nainggolan said police launched a search and believed the men were still in Bali.

"The tunnel is about 12 meters (39 ft) long and we suspect it took more than a week to build," he told Reuters.

The four men were serving jail terms for a mix of drug and fraud offences.

Staff noticed on Monday morning that they had gone missing.
