It's happened again. Despite the recent spate of helicopter escapes, the prison in Saint-Denis, Reunion (a small island in the Indian Ocean) failed to install an anti-helicopter netting. Three hijackers, pretending to be tourists, held a gun to the pilot's head and forced him to fly to the jail. Cult leader Juliano Verbard was inprisoned for rape and child molestation. Two prison followers, identified as Alexin Jismy and Fabrice Michel, went with Verbard. The criminals are at large, but local officials believe they will soon have them apprehended.
