xabsigaBosasso (RBC) Puntland security officials say 15 convicted pirates transferred from Seychelles escaped from the central jail in the port town of Bosasso on Friday, RBC Radio reports.

The convicted pirates managed to escape using their clothes tied up as a rope which made the 15 men to jump over the wall before the prison guards could see them.

The police now confirm 13 of the escaped men were re-arrested and were retaken back to their prison rooms while two are still missing.

A search operation is currently underway to find the missing two convicted pirates.

The 15 men were transferred from Seychelles last year after a court there sentenced them jail terms ranging from 12 years to 267years.   They were transferred to Puntland to serve their jail term in their home region in Somalia following an agreement between Puntland State of Somalia and the Seychelles government thought the United Nations Dug and Crime Agency.
