Police in Indonesia have launched a manhunt for a French national accused of drug trafficking, after he broke out of his second-floor cell by sawing through the window bars and rappelling to freedom with a sarong.
Felix Dorfin's daring escape happened on Sunday evening at a detention centre on Lombok island, where the 35-year-old was awaiting trial in a possible death penalty case.
"He escaped through the window on the second floor in the detention centre and, using a sarong and curtains which were tied together, he climbed down and then escaped," said West Nusa Tenggara police spokesman I Komang Suartana.
Dorfin is believed to still be in Lombok. Police have deployed officers to scour the island to search for him, said Suartana.
