Juvenile Delinquents Flee Urals Facility

Police in the Sverdlovsk region are searching for 12 juvenile delinquents who broke out of a detention facility and commandeered a GAZ truck after a spat with administrators, Interfax reported on Tuesday.

The pupils, aged 15 to 17, demanded the ouster of  the school official behind a new disciplinary regime, and about 50 went on a destructive rampage through the facility when their demands were not met, a police spokesman said.

Police were able to capture four escapees by shooting out the  tires. There were no reports of injuries.
