Brazil Jail

Rio de Janeiro: Over 100 inmates escaped from a prison in Brazil's Recife city and two prisoners died in a shootout with police, the media reported.

The inmates escaped from the Frei Damiao de Bozanno prison on Saturday when one of the walls was destroyed by explosives, Xinhua news agency reported citing Brazilian newspaper Diario de Pernambuco's report.

By early evening, military police had managed to recapture at least 40 prisoners. The latest prison break occurred only three days after 53 inmates broke out of Professor Barreto Campelo jail in Itamaraca, in the metropolitan area of Recife.

However, all the prisoners were recaptured.
