U.S. Inmates Escape Notorious Bali Prison

Two American men escaped from Bali’s most notorious prison, BBC reports. Chrishan Beasley was arrested in August for carrying 5 grams (0.18 oz.) of hashish. He and another inmate, Paul Anthony Hoffman—who was serving a 20-month sentence for armed robbery—are said to have escaped together by using a ladder from a construction project to climb over the prison wall. Hoffman was caught immediately, but Beasley managed to get away.
