At least 219 inmates escaped from a prison in northeastern Uganda, local media reported Thursday.  

The prisoners took off their prison uniforms and fled naked. 

An army spokesperson said in a statement that two prisoners were captured and two were killed.  

A guard was reportedly killed by the inmates, who made off with 15 guns. 

Efforts are underway to capture the remaining inmates, officials said.
