Johannesburg - Two of the five awaiting-trial prisoners who escaped from the Hibberdene Magistrate's Court last week, have been re-arrested in Amanzimtoti, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.

Captain Thulani Zwane said Sizwe Khuzwayo and Sithembizo Eric Chiliza were arrested while travelling in a taxi towards Durban on Monday.

They were with a third escapee, who was dropped off in Park Rynie, before police intercepted the vehicle.

Police were still searching for him and one other escapee.

On Friday, another of the escapees was caught by community members and was handed over to the police.

The group escaped from custody on Thursday while awaiting trial on charges of house-breaking and theft.
