Australian, Bulgarian, Indian and Malaysian inmates pulled off an escape from a prison on the island of Bali, which is not uncommon in Indonesia due to overcrowding and rising drug convictions.

The four men were locked up for an immigration offence, money laundering and drugs offences, they escaped through a hole in a wall that connects to a water tunnel heading to a street.

Difficult words: inmate (a prisoner), due to (because of), conviction (a formal decision in the court of law).
