Brazil: Watch 40-inmate prison break after dramatic explosion

Dramatic footage has emerged showing the moment in which at least 40 inmates broke free from a Brazilian jail, following an explosion through an external wall on 23 January. The video, which was circulated by the Folha de Pernambuco newspaper, shows a man entering the compound shortly before an explosion, which sends inmates running and tumbling over the smoking wall, before many turn back. Two inmates are also depicted running away outside the compound. Jan 26, 2016
