Men overpower guards and escape from Bosnia prison

Men overpower guards and escape from Bosnia prison

Police say nine prisoners overpowered their guards and escaped from a prison in east Bosnia but most were recaptured within hours.
Police spokesman Dragan Miokovic says the nine grabbed guards' weapons and escaped in two cars from Ustikolina prison, some 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of Sarajevo Tuesday evening.
The fugitives abandoned the cars on the outskirts of Sarajevo and split up. Police kept the Hrasnica suburb blocked off overnight and found eight out of the nine fugitives.
Officers are still searching Wednesday for a 28-year old drug dealer who was serving an 18 month prison term.
