DENPASAR, Indonesia - Indonesian police have recaptured a US citizen who escaped a week ago from an overcrowded prison on the holiday island of Bali, the jail's second breakout of foreign inmates this year.

Cristian Beasley from California was rearrested on Sunday, Badung Police chief Yudith Satria Hananta said, without providing further details.

Beasley was a suspect in crimes related to narcotics but had not been sentenced when he escaped from Kerobokan prison in Bali last week.

The 32-year-old is believed to have cut through bars in the ceiling of his cell before scaling a perimeter wall of the prison in an area being refurbished.
