Nearly 200 inmates on Friday escaped from the Sialang Bungkuk jail in Pekanbaru, Indonesia, in what has been described as an epic prison break caught on camera. According to Indonesia’s Metro TV News, prisoners at the maximum security facility had been staging a protest against conditions, when a riot broke out and detainees managed to flee.
The jailbreak was said to have occurred after about 200 inmates were let out of cells for Friday prayers. However, Indonesian authorities say they have been able to recapture more than 170 inmates who took part in the mass escape at a prison on the island of Sumatra.
