The angry demonstrators at Denpasar’s Kerobokan jail managed to remove the prison’s main steel door from its hinges but police stopped them getting inside, an AFP correspondent reported on Wednesday.
“Kill Amrozi, kill Amrozi!” the crowd yelled, referring to one of three people sentenced to death by firing squad for the 2002 nightclub bombings which killed 202 people.
Amrozi and the other two on death row, Imam Samudra and Mukhlas, had been transferred the previous day to a high-security island prison off neighbouring Java island following earlier angry protests.
The confrontation was temporarily defused by the arrival of a group of traditional musicians from a nearby village, who positioned themselves between police and protesters.
But the shouting, drum-beating crowd had not yet dispersed.
