BRUSSELS — Twelve illegal immigrants escaped from an immigration detention centre in Brugge at about 9.30pm on Thursday.
 
Police said seven nationalities were represented by the 12 escapees, including Russian, Albanian, Moroccan and Cameroon nationals.

Two of them were arrested in the vicinity of the detention centre soon after escaping, but authorities are still trying to track down the other 10 escapees.
 
Brugge police are urging residents to report any suspicious activity and officers are searching the area with the help of sniffer dogs.

A federal police helicopter is also being used to track down the illegal immigrants, newspaper 'Het Laatste Nieuws' reported on Friday.

Details of the escape are still sketchy, but the 12 people are reported to have escaped from the detention centre's recreation area.
