Meanwhile, authorised agencies said about 1,200 convicts are on the run from three different detention facilities on Sulawesi island. Ministry of Justice official Sri Puguh Utami said the prisoners escaped two overcapacity facilities in Palu city and Donggala after the massive quake struck off the areas. The Donggala jail was set on fire and all 343 inmates were now roaming free, she added. Some of the convicts were jailed for corruption and narcotics offences, while five people convicted of terror-related crimes had been moved from the prison just days before the disaster.
