The break-out was during Wednesday night and Thursday morning. They were noticed when guards unlocked the facility for breakfast yesterday.

The prisoners are not locked in their cells overnight- but locked together in sections.

The men had broken a window and sawn through an iron grill. They scaled the wall using ropes made from linen.

Authorities say they believe they had outside help.
