Evacuation of foreigners starts at Indonesian jail: AFP
Four men with Western features were seen entering one bus while another group of 10 women, some also of Western appearance, got onto a second bus also parked outside the main entrance to the prison.
"We are starting the evacuation process now," Bali police spokesman Hariadi, who like many Indonesians goes by a single name, told AFP.
"We will try to evacuate all foreign prisoners by today. They will be transferred to several locations set up by the justice and human-rights ministry," he added.
Authorities earlier said they would evacuate 60 foreign prisoners -- including 12 Australians -- as well as female inmates, amid fears they could be used as hostages.
