DENPASAR (Reuters) – Indonesian police are hunting for a US citizen who escaped yesterday from Bali’s Kerobokan prison by cutting through steel bars in a ceiling. Cristian Beasley, 32, who was a suspect in crimes related to narcotics but had not been sentenced, escaped at 4.10am, said Badung Police chief Yudith Satria Hananta. After getting through the ceiling, Mr Beasley, from California, is believed to have then used a rope to climb down a wall before getting over a perimeter wall in an area being refurbished. Another American, Paul Anthony Hoffman, 57, was captured while also trying to escape, Mr Hananta said.
