South Africa escape: Manhunt launched for inmates on the run

A manhunt is under way in South Africa after a jail break by 69 inmates in the south-western town of Malmesbury.

Eight are still at large but 61 have been re-captured, the Department of Correctional Services said.

It said the break-out happened when prisoners overpowered staff in the jail. Previous reports said they had escaped while being transferred to court for trial.

People have been warned not to attempt to catch any of them.

Part of the escape was caught on camera by a member of the public who was sitting in his car.
