Taliban jail raid frees hundreds

Front page on the BBC World News website.

Afghan security forces are searching for hundreds of prisoners who escaped a jail in Kandahar, Afghanistan, after Taleban fighters blew up the main gate.

BBC report

1,000 people escaped, including 400 Taliban members. Kandahar is under a state of emergency. Are things really that out of control?

They said the blast was large enough to blow out windows 3km away.
