This news is from Bali. Four men go to prison. They are not from Bali. They are from Australia, Bulgaria, India and Malaysia. They go to prison because of money laundering, drugs and illegal immigration.

They escape from the prison. They escape through a hole in a wall.

Prisoners often escape in Indonesia. There are too many prisoners in the prisons there.

Difficult words: money laundering (putting illegal money into a legal business to make the dirty money clean), escape (get away), hole (a space).
