92 inmates escape in Ethiopia prison break


Apr 17, 2019 (2 days ago) |
Addis Ababa, April 16 : At least 92 prisoners have escaped from a prison in Ethiopia's Gambella state, the state media reported on Tuesday.
John Umod, chief police inspector of Gambella city prison, said the prison break occurred on Monday when guards were trying to stop a fight among inmates, Ethiopia News Agency (ENA) reported.

A manhunt for the escapees was underway, Umod said, adding that the prison was housing 316 inmates before the prison break.

In September 2016, a "failed prison break" near Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa left at least 23 inmates dead.
