30 in jailbreak dug hole in wall

From Times Wire Reports

More than 30 prisoners escaped from a jail in Nzerekore by using spoons to scoop a hole in the baked earth wall of their prison building, which had been softened by rain, prison authorities in the African nation said.

"They used their sheets and shirts to make a rope to climb down the right wall of the jail," an official said.
