Prisoners Fall in Love Through Peephole

"Two prisoners in an Ivory Coast jail who courted and fell in love through a peephole in an iron door have been released for a few hours to get married, one of their jailers said Friday. Roland Guy Bouabre, serving a 3-year sentence for stealing a bicycle, courted Emilie Yobouet, who was given a one-year sentence for kidnapping a child, while he was delivering groceries for her to cook. He would take the groceries to the iron door and then a guard would deliver them. "You can find love in all kinds of places -- even prison," Daloa prison guard Norbert Bah told Reuters by telephone."
