Ratanakkiri provincial police are still searching for four escaped convicts who broke out of prison on Saturday.
 
Provincial prison chief Tin Sovanny said five prisoners had sawed off the bars of their prison cell at 3am on Saturday, using a blade they had kept hidden in their cells. One prisoner was found hiding in the forest near the prison, but the remaining four are still at large.
 
“We have yet to re-arrest them. We are working hard to find them,” Mr Sovanny said.
 
The four convicts were identified as Nong Vanna, Song Hak, Keo Chanthy, and Keo Chhork, all of whom were spending at least three years in jail for drug trafficking.
 
It is unclear if they received help from anyone outside the prison, however police have increased security at the facility to prevent further escapes.
