Naked bank robbers

Police in El Salvador say two naked men who came out of a hole in the road were bank robbers.

Officers say the men were digging a tunnel towards the vault of a bank in San Salvador, reports the BBC.

The two men, covered in nothing but dust, were caught after part of the tunnel collapsed, leaving a gaping hole in the street.

They had apparently stripped off because of the heat inside the 250ft tunnel.

The area had been under police surveillance after reports of mysterious noises.

"We have stopped a big-scale robbery," said the city's police commissioner, Wilfredo Avelenda.

He said the tunnel, which led to an abandoned house, had been worked on for several days and was nearing completion.

When part of the tunnel collapsed, near to the bank, the two men ran out in to the street to escape, but were arrested by a police patrol.

The pair - aged 22 and 18 - are to be charged with robbery, the police commissioner said.
