Taliban Free 400 Inmates In Prison Break

Taliban insurgents stormed a prison outside the Afghan city of Ghazni, 120 kilometers southwest of the capital, Kabul, killing guards and releasing more than 400 inmates. Suicide bombers apparently used a car to destroy the main entrance of the mud fort being being used as a prison. Ghazni's deputy governor, Mohammed Ali Ahmadi, said 80 inmates had been recaptured but 352 were on the run, including about 150 Taliban. (Reuters)
