Gunmen storm Indonesia jail, kill 4 detainees
YOGYAKARTA (AP) - A group of well-trained gunmen stormed an Indonesian jail on the main island of Java early Saturday and executed four detainees accused of murdering a special forces soldier.
At least 17 masked gunmen angry over the killing of a member of Indonesia's elite military unit, known as Kopassus, allegedly by the four men detained in Yogyakarta's Cebongan prison, broke into the jail, said local police chief Brig. Gen. Sabar Rahardjo.
The attackers tortured several guards and forced them to open the jail cell just after midnight on Saturday.
The four detainees were dragged from their cell and shot with automatic weapons before the gunmen destroyed surveillance cameras and fled, he said.
