Andenne - Ontsnappingspoging met gijzelname

ANDENNE - Sunday afternoon, a guard was taken hostage by a prisoner in Andenne. Three other guards were attacked on the courtyard and got slightly injured. The prisoner managed to force the guards to open the doors and carjacked a vehicle outside of the prison premisses, leaving the guard behind. But a bit later, he was blocked by a police patrol on a bridge and arrested.

Another prisoner was arrested who would have helped with the escape. Both prisoners were condemned to long year imprisonement (up to 20 years) for robbery and theft with violence. The one who actually managed to get out of the prison for some time, already escaped two times.

The guards are on strike to protest against the fifth hostage taking in less then two years time; and against the violence towards them.
