Four foreigners have escaped from Bali’s Kerokoban Prison using a tunnel, say Indonesian officials.

The prisoners were identified as Australian Shaun Edward Davidson, Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov, Indian Sayed Muhammad and Malaysian Tee Kok King.

Prison governor Tony Nainggolan said police launched a search and believed the men were still in Bali.

“The tunnel is about 12 meters (39 ft) long and we suspect it took more than a week to build,” he told Reuters.

The four men were serving jail terms for a mix of drug and fraud offences.

Staff noticed on Monday morning that they had gone missing.
