Bali jailbreak: Two captured, Malaysian still on the run

PETALING JAYA: Indonesian police have today captured two of the four inmates who broke out of Kerobokan prison, but Malaysian fugitive Tee Kok King, 50, is still on the run.

Indian national Sayed Mohammed Said, 31, and Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov Iliev, 43, were nabbed by the authourities in East Timor's capital Dili this afternoon.

Police believed Tee's and 33-year-old Australian Shaun Edward Davidson's flight to freedom would be shortlived as they intensified the hunt and called upon Interpol to assist.

"Two escapee inmates have already been arrested in Dili, East Timor," Bali police spokesman Hengky Widjaja said.

The four broke out of jail through a 15m-long tunnel on Monday morning. Tee was nabbed in January last year for smuggling syabu and was sentenced to seven years jail.
