    Background: Fifteen Tupameros urban Guerrillas escaped from Montevideo's Punta Carretas prison on Wednesday through a tunnel leading form the prison basement to the city sewers. Six common criminals escaped with them.

    Police who set up a major man-hunt said the 150-foot (45 m.) tunnel had been cut form outside the prison. The fugitives included several who had been recaptured after taking part in a mass break-out by tunnel from the same prison last September.
