Mass jail break in Indonesia

Medan jail burns as more than 200 prisoners escaped to freedom in Indonesia's fourth largest city. Police said the blaze was started by convicts protesting because water and electricity supplies had been cut off all day. Officers said five people were killed in the fire at the maximum security Tanjung Gusta jail. Soldiers and police are still trying to track down many of the escapees. By Friday at least 64 had been recaptured. More than 170 others were still on the run. Police say some of the convicts are believed to have links to Toni Togar who's serving a 20-year sentence elsewhere for a series of church bombings in Sumatra in 2000.
