Two prisoners escape from Ν. Greece prison farm

Τwo inmates, both foreign nationals, escaped on Monday morning from the Nea Kassavetia prison farm in northern Greece.
One inmate was serving a three-year sentence on convictions of receiving stolen goods, possession of forged passport and illegal entry to the country. The second man was serving a 25-year sentence for felony drug trafficking.

According to a justice ministry announcement, the two escapees used a ladder to scale the prison's outer wall. 
Meanwhile, the ministry ordered a preliminary investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a 44 year-old man remanded in custody at the Korydallos penitentiary. The victim was found on Sunday by other prisoners hanged in his cell.

He was facing a charge of aggravated assault and has been hospitalised at the facility's psychiatric ward recently.
