(KABUL, Afghanistan) — More than a dozen prisoners, including members of the Taliban, escaped from jail Friday in Sar-e-Pul province, in northern Afghanistan.
Afghan officials say insurgents detonated a bomb outside the prison walls, and the prisoners escaped through the rubble. Afghan guards fired at the escapees, killing three, but fourteen prisoners are still at large.
