ATHENS, November 16 (RIA Novosti) - Seven inmates have been caught digging a nine-meter-long tunnel in a prison in Larissa, a city in central Greece, the country’s justice ministry said on Friday.
"The inmates have dug a nine-meter long tunnel at the depth of five meters to get outside the penitentiary facility’s territory,” the ministry said.
The tunnel began in a ground-floor cell. The breakout was thwarted “by observant prison workers,” the ministry said without giving further details.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
