Prison guards have shot dead 17 inmates after a mass breakout at Buimo prison in Papua New Guinea.

Three prisoners have been recaptured while 57 others managed to escape and remain at large.

Authorities have warned that the escaped inmates, some of them still awaiting trial, pose a serious threat to the safety of the area.

Moreover, the prison in Lae, Papua New Guinea's second largest city, has seen repeated similar escapes over the past years.
