A murderer escaped from a Russian penal colony aboard a hijacked helicopter, but was captured a few hours later.

Officials say the drama began yesterday when two people commandeered the helicopter owned by a private company and ordered its crew to fly to the prison near Vologda, 300km north of Moscow.

A rope ladder was lowered and the murderer climbed aboard. The prisoner hijacked a taxi, but it was stopped at a police roadblock.
