One of the two occupants of the high-powered car pointed a fire arm at the van which was carrying three inmates from Sintra to Lisbon.

 

One of the prison guards drew his weapon, but no shots were exchanged.

 

Police back-up was requested and the car took off. It was later found abandoned.

 

A prison source said the number plates on the car could have been false.
