A video of CCTV footage of prisoners escaping from prison on foot has made its way online. Gulf News reported in full that they were three Africans who were arrested on Wednesday for stealing in the Naif area of Dubai. They escaped on foot from the cell and made a dash onto a busy street, one of them was arrested again immediately and the others were caught within two hours. 

An investigation as to how they escaped is underway
