Four foreign inmates have managed to dig a tunnel and escape Kerobokan Prison in Denpasar, Bali. 

Kerobokan chief warden Tony Nainggolan said prison guards became aware of the escape during a routine inspection on Monday morning. 

“We found that the four inmates were missing during the inspection,” Tony was quoted by tribunnews.com

The escaped inmates have been identified as Australian Shaun Edward Davidson aka Eddi Lonsdale aka Michael John Bayman, Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov, Indian Syaed Mohammed Said and Malaysian Tee Kok King Bin Tee Kim Sai.

After searching the premises, prison guards discovered a tunnel dug by the inmates behind the prison clinic. The 15-meter-long tunnel, with an opening measuring only 75 centimeters by 50 centimeters, emerges on Jl. Raya Mertanadi. 

The police are currently hunting down the inmates. (dmr)
