Four inmates escaped at noontime on Wednesday from southern Greece’s prison of Tiryntha.
It was realized by the guards during the noon roll call that four inmates were missing, including two Albanian nationals, one Egyptian and one Moroccan.
Local police authorities have launched a widespread manhunt to locate the four prisoners, who escaped under circumstances which are completely unknown at this time.
The prison of Tiryntha is a minimum-security rural jail in the northeastern Peloponnese, in the county of Argolis.
Tiryntha is the modern Greek toponym of the ancient city of Tiryns, where Hercules performed his twelve labors, according to Greek mythology.
